LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL 



Office of the North Carolina Corporation Commission. 

Raleigh:, December 31, 1905. 

His Excellency, R. B. Glenn, 

Governor of North Carolina, 

Raleigh, N. C. 

Sir : — As required by law, we band you berewitb our annual report 
for the year 1905, being the seventh annual report of the North Caro- 
lina Corporation Commission. This report contains the law estab-. 
lishing the Corporation Commission, as revised and brought forward 
in the Revisal of 1905, and the laws pertaining to the Department 
enacted by the General Assembly of 1905 ; the tariffs and classifica- 
tions of railroad and express companies in North Carolina, together 
with the rules and regulations of the Corporation Commission ; cases 
disposed of by the Corporation Commission; the annual reports of 
fifty railroad companies, nine street railway companies, two telegraph 
companies, and the Southern Express Company, as of June 30, 1905 ; 
also reports of 236 State, private and savings banks of condition of 
business on the 9th day of November, 1905. This report also con- 
tains the assessment of all properties required to be assessed by the 
Corporation Commission and the distribution thereof to counties and 
municipalities, and the amount of incomes returned for taxation, 
with the amount of taxes computed thereon, and the distribution of 
same by counties. 

railroads. 

There are within this State 3,859.09 miles of railroad, not includ- 
ing double and side-tracks — an increase over last year of 59 miles. 
Of our railroads, 2,839.51 miles are operated by the Southern Rail- 
way Company, Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, and Seaboard 
Air Line Railway, divided as follows : Southern Railway Company, 
1,279.56 miles; Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, 947.83 
miles; Seaboard Air Line Railway, 612.12 miles. Gross earnings 



IV N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

of railroads within the State were $22,441,705 ; net earnings were 
$8,470,483 — an increase in gross earnings of $2,053,765 and in net 
earnings of $931,472 over last year. In the operation of railroads 
15,877 persons were employed within the State. During the year 
5,589,500 persons were transported within the State. 

ACCIDENTS. 

In the operation of trains 35 employees were killed and 492 in- 
jured; 5 passengers were killed and 143 injured; 74 other persons 
were killed and 152 injured. 

Three hundred and eighty-seven complaints were made to the Com- 
mission during the year, the most of which have been disposed of. 
Some in which it was necessary to make further investigation are 
still pending. As the records of our office will show, these complaints 
were of great variety. A great many of them were for alleged failure 
of railroad companies to render proper service. For example : com- 
plaints were made for failure to keep passenger schedules ; to bulletin 
arrival of trains ; to furnish cars for shipment of freight ; to transport 
freight, carload and less than carload, within a reasonable time after 
same was received ; to deliver freight after its arrival at destination. 
In many cases these complaints were sustained by proof or admission 
of the carriers. 

It was found that the cause of failure to keep passenger schedules 
as to through trains was, in many instances, that their connections 
had not been kept ; and as to other trains, that they were delayed on 
account of failure of through trains to keep their schedules. Passen- 
ger service that is rendered by local trains which run upon their own 
schedule, or such trains as connect with but do not wait an unreason- 
able time on through trains, is more satisfactory. It may be that 
upon this idea the passenger service will be improved; if not, there 
will be a demand for more local trains to be run independent of con- 
nections. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Company/ had passenger earnings of 
$1,432,794; Seaboard Air Line Eailway, $879,667; Southern Rail- 
way Company, $3,072,442 for the year ending June 30, 1905. It 
would seem that the traveling public ought to have better passenger 
service. We believe that our State is one of the exceptions in which 
railroads are required to furnish first and second class fares. This 
requirement, coupled with the further one that railroads shall furnish 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. V 

separate accommodations for the races, requires so many cars as to 
make an unwieldy as well as more expensive train. We believe that 
if railroads were required to furnish one fare they could give better 
service and at less cost, and that the passenger fare should be reduced. 
The average amount received per passenger per mile of the Atlantic 
Coast Line Railroad Company was 2.465 cents; Seaboard Air Line 
Railway, 2.327 cents; Southern Railway Company, 2.386 cents, for 
the year ending June 30, 1905. The average passenger earnings per 
mile of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company was $1,426 ; Sea- 
board Air Line Railway, $1,406; Southern Railway, owned lines, 
$1,707 ; Southern Railway Company, leased lines, $2,682 ; North 
Carolina Railroad, $5,459 ; Atlanta and Charlotte Air Line Railway, 
$5,514. 

Complaints in regard to freight service will appear in detail in 
another ^aH of this report. We will therefore only call attention to 
the following: 

The furniture manufacturers at High Point complained that, 
although often requested to furnish cars for shipment of furniture, 
the Southern Railway had failed to do so ; that there was at that time 
a demand of upwards of three hundred furniture cars ; that goods had 
been sold, and unless cars could be had the contracts would be broken 
and might be cancelled, and that no penalty provided by law or dam- 
ages which they could recover from the company would be an adequate 
remedy; that their damage in loss of trade could not enter into dam- 
ages which they might recover, and yet this would be a great part of 
the threatened loss. This complaint was filed on the 29th day of 
July, 1905, and the Commission took the matter up with the Southern 
Railway Company and held a session at High Point on the first day 
of August, 1905, which session was attended by the manufacturers 
and shippers interested and by the traffic manager and other agents 
for the Southern Railway Company. At this session complainants 
succeeded in convincing the railroad officials of their urgent need of 
cars, and the railroad officials undertook very energetically to procure 
for complainants necessary cars, and what promised to be a serious 
car famine was averted. 

Upon complaint of the truck growers at Faison and Mount Olive 
of inadequate shipping facilities, after notice to the Atlantic Coast 
Line Railroad Company, the Commission held a session at Faison on 
the 22d day of June, 1905. Complainants were present, but no rep- 



VI m C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

resentative of the railroad company. It appeared that facilities for 
shipping truck were inadequate; that there was a great delay in 
placing same on the markets, and that complainants had been and 
still were suffering loss on account thereof. The Commission took 
the matter up with the officials of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad 
Company and secured a change of schedule, which, we have since 
been informed by some of the complainants, was of considerable 
advantage to them. 

Complaint was made to the Commission by the Winston Tobacco 
Board of Trade and other citizens that the Southern Eailway Com- 
pany was not delivering their freight after arrival at Winston; that 
cars were not furnished for loading freight, and that there was unrea- 
sonable delay in transportation of both incoming and outgoing 
freights. After notice to the Southern Railway Company, the Com- 
mission held a session at Winston. Complainants were present; also 
the division superintendent and others representing the Southern 
Railway Company. It was admitted that most serious congestions 
had existed at Winston, but it was claimed, and correctly so, that this 
congestion in delivering freight had been, by unusual activity and 
energy, relieved after complaint was filed and before the hearing. 
It was stated that the principal cause of the congestion was the lack 
of yard facilities. The business had outgrown the facilities, and the 
Commission was assured that the Southern Railway intended to pro- 
vide adequate yard facilities as soon as practicable. Until this is 
done, congestions will occur periodically, which will require addi- 
tional shifting engines and force to relieve. 

The other part of the complaint, as to failure to transport freight 
within a reasonable time, is, we regret to say, not confined to any 
part of the State, but is frequent on railroads and at many places. 
The enforcement of the penalty for this negligence, which would seem 
to be severe enough, has, we regret to say, not yet had the effect to 
arouse the railroads to proper diligence, nor does the penalty com- 
pensate for the loss sustained in many cases. If the seller cannot 
have his goods delivered with any regularity or certainty he will lose 
his customer, and it is in holding the trade rather than the delivery 
of a particular shipment that the shipper is especially interested. 
We have taken up each case called to our attention with the railroads 
and had same investigated, with the hope of .placing the blame prop- 
erly and thereby correcting the evil. 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. VII 

Feeling that several places in our State were discriminated against 
in interstate freights from Western and Northwestern points, we took 
the matter up with the Southern Railway and Norfolk and Western 
Railway, with the result that the Southern Railway agreed to reduce 
and did reduce materially certain rates to Asheville. The question 
of reduction to other points is still under consideration. 

CASES IK" COURT. 

Only one appeal was taken from order of the Corporation Com- 
mission during this year, and that in case of Round Pine Lum- 
ber Company against the Seaboard Air Line Railway. This was 
a petition for a siding. The proceedings in the case are given else- 
where in this report. On appeal the order of the Commission was 
affirmed in the Superior and Supreme Courts of the State. 

The case of Dennis-Simmons Lumber Company against the At- 
lantic Coast Line Railroad Company, to which we referred in our 
last report as pending in the Supreme Court, was tried at the Feb- 
ruary Term and the judgment of the Superior Court of Wilson 
County was reversed and the case was remanded. The Superior 
Court had held that the Corporation Commission did not have the 
power to make the order ; so this case is now pending in the Wilson 
Superior Court. 

The case of Southern Railway Company against Corporation 
Commissioners and the Greensboro Ice and Coal Company, referred 
to in our last report as pending in the United States Court, was in 
April decided in favor of the plaintiff, and as the matter was one 
of great importance to the State the case was carried by the Cor- 
poration Commission to the Supreme Court of the United States in 
order to have the decision reviewed. On motion, the case was ad- 
vanced on the Supreme Court docket and set for hearing April 1, 
1906. In our last report we endeavored to show the importance of 
this case in railroad regulation in Xorth Carolina, and will not 
repeat what was there said. There is no provision in the Interstate 
Commerce Commission Act which authorizes the Interstate Com- 
merce Commission to require railroads to construct side-tracks or 
to order cars placed on them for loading or unloading. So far, these 
matters have been left to the General Assembly of the State or such 
departments as the power was conferred on. 



VIII N. C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION". 

There is no necessity for Federal intervention in these matters as 
to interstate commerce. In many of the States, and even to some 
shippers and consignees in our own State, the Interstate Commerce 
Commission is too inaccessible for relief in such cases, and these are 
cases in which the State's action would in nowise encumber or hinder 
the Interstate Commerce Commission, but, on the contrary, would 
facilitate it. 

Reference was made in our last annual report to the case just then 
heard in our Supreme Court — State upon the relation of the ^s"orth 
Carolina Corporation Commission against the Atlantic Coast Line 
.Railroad Company — in which the order of our Commission requiring 
the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company and Southern Railway 
Company to make connection at Selma in the afternoon of each day 
was affirmed. The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company carried 
the case to the Supreme Court of the United States by writ of error, 
where the case is now pending. It is hoped that it will be reached 
and determined during the month of February . ~No supersedeas was 
issued, however, and the connection ordered was made on and since 
the 9th day of February, 1905. The method adopted by the Atlantic 
Coast Line Railroad Company of making this connection was by put- 
ting on a special train. Inasmuch as the jury found, on testimony 
offered in the trial in the Superior Court, that the operation of a 
special train from Rocky Mount to Selma would involve a loss, the 
Commission has required the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company 
to furnish statements from time to time showing revenue derived 
from this train and cost of operating same. It appears from this 
statement that during the ten months and nineteen days which this 
train was operated, up to and including December 31, 1905, 19,203 
passengers were accommodated by it, and that the revenue derived 
therefrom was $10,541.50, and that the visible cost of operation was 
$8,848.16, showing, instead of a loss, a net profit of $1,693.34. If 
this train had been operated on return trip as passenger train, the 
revenue therefrom would have been greater, or if it had been credited 
with the amount earned on return trip in freight service the revenue 
would have been greater. As the Commission understands it, the 
whole expense of this train is charged to the passenger service from 
Rocky Mount to Smithfield, while the revenue derived by it from 
doing freight work is not credited to the earnings. 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. IX 



TELEPHONES. 



The constant tendency is for the largest telephone company to 
absorb the smaller ones in onr State, and this makes it important that 
the power to regulate the rates and supervise the service of this im- 
portant class of quasi public corporations be made full and clear. 
Our statute is now very meagre. We respectfully recommend that 
the attention of the General Assembly be called to this matter. 

BANKS. 

The great progress going on in the industrial development in our 
State is reflected in the increase in number and resources in our 
banks. The number of State, private and savings banks in our State 
on the date of our last annual report was 192 ; now we have 236. 
The total resources of these banks, according to report of November 
10, 1904, was $31,604,183 ; the total resources of these banks, accord- 
ing to report of November 9, 1905, was $41,095,539— an increase of 
$9,491,356. The capital stock November 10, 1904, was $4,93o,504; 
November 9, 1905, $5,656,815 — an increase of $721,311. Loans 
and discounts, November 10, 1904, $20,759,830; November 9, 1905, 
$25,278,000— an increase of $4,518,696. 

There were 50 National banks in North Carolina on October 30, 
1905, with a capital stock of $3,975,000. Five of these banks were 
organized during the year October 31, 1905, with a combined capital 
stock of $475,000. On November 10, 1904, the total resources of 
these banks was $25,389,809, while on November 9, 1905, it 
amounted to $30,401,436. 

In view of the large amounts of funds entrusted to them, and the 
further fact that a number of them have small capital stock, the Com- 
missioners appreciate the great responsibility resting upon them in 
the supervision of State banks. By careful examination and report 
upon the condition of each bank, and criticism thereupon directed to 
the board of directors or other officers of the bank, we believe that 
much has been done to promote good banking in the State. We are 
pleased to say that in most instances the criticisms of the Commis- 
sion were accepted and acted upon in good spirit. 

Upon examination it was found that the business of the Bank of 
Benson had not been properly conducted, and time was given the 
bank to correct the irregularities ; but, failing to put the bank in 
proper condition, the Commission ordered it closed, and Mr. J. F. 



X B". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

Lee, Benson, ~N. C, was appointed receiver by order of the Superior 
Court of Johnston County, and the same is now in process of liquida- 
tion. 

The Bank Examiner discovered irregularities in the business of 
the Bank of Eayetteville in shortages which involved the cashier and 
teller, which were called to the attention of the board of directors, 
and time was allowed them to put the bank in proper condition. The 
board of directors, fearing a run on the bank, declined to avail them- 
selves of the time allowed, and requested the Commission to have 
the examiner take charge of its assets and apply for a receiver, and 
this was done. Mr. R. T. Gray was appointed temporary receiver by 
order of the Superior Court of Cumberland County, but during the 
temporary receivership the affairs of the bank were thoroughly ex- 
amined and arrangements were made to pay all the creditors, and 
the case was thus adjusted and settled. The bank was reorganized 
and resumed business. 

John O. Ellington, Bank Examiner, resigned April 1, 1905, and 
John W. Ay cock was elected to succeed him. He resigned on the 18th 
day of September, 1905, and F. J. Haywood, Jr., was elected to the 
position. 

TAXES. 

The total assessed value of all property assessed by the Corpora- 
tion Commission for 1905 was $75,373,333. 

INCOME TAX. 

By the last Revenue and Machinery Act, incomes subject to taxa- 
tion were required to be listed with the Corporation Commission. 
Notwithstanding the rather complicated machinery provided for it, 
the amount of incomes returned in 1905 was $2,798,895, against 
$2,454,504 for the year 1904— an increase of $344,391. Two thou- 
sand eight hundred and twenty-five persons listed incomes for taxa- 
tion. No incomes were returned from the following twelve counties : 
Alexander, Ashe, Camden, Clay, Currituck, Dare, Graham, Haywood, 
Mitchell, Polk, Watauga and Yancey. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Eranklin McNeill, Chairman.

tions shall state the grounds of objection to such decision or determination. 
If any one of such exceptions shall be overruled, then such party may appeal 
from the order overruling the exception, and shall, within ten days after the 
decision overruling the exception, give notice of his appeal. When an excep- 
tion is made to the facts as found by the commission, the appeal shall be to 
the superior court in term time; otherwise to the judge of the superior court 
at chambers. The party appealing shall, within ten days after the notice of 
appeal has been served, file with the commission exceptions to the decision or 
determination overruling the exception, which statement shall assign the 
errors complained of and the grounds of the appeal. Upon the filing of such 
statement the commission shall, within ten days, transmit all the papers and 
evidence considered by it, together with the assignment of errors filed by the 
appellant, to a judge of the superior court holding court or residing in some 
district in which such company operates or the party resides. If there be no 
exceptions to any facts as found by the commission, it shall be heard by the 
judge at chambers at some place in the district, of which all parties shall have 
ten days' notice. 1899, c. 164, ss. 7, 28 ; 1903, c. 126.

such court and shall have precedence of other civil actions, and shall be tried 
under the same rules and regulations as are prescribed for the trial of other 
civil causes, except that the rates fixed or the decision or determination made 
by the commission shall be prima facie just and reasonable. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 
Note. See s. 1112. 

1076. Heard at chambers by consent. By consent of all parties the appeal 
may be heard and determined at chambers before any judge of a district

therein, or in which the person or company does business. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1077. To supreme court. Either party may appeal to the supreme court 
from the judgment of the superior court under the same rules and regulations 
as are prescribed by law for appeals, except that the state of North Carolina 
if it shall appeal shall not be required to give any undertaking or make any 
deposit to secure the cost of such appeal, and such court may advance the 
cause on its docket so as to give the same a speedy hearing. 1899, c. 164, s. 7.

ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. O 

be so observed and regarded by corporations appealing until the same shall be 
changed, reversed or modified by the judgment of the superior court, unless 
the railroad company shall within fifteen days file with said commission a 
justified undertaking, in a sum to be fixed by the commission, conditioned to 
pay the state of North Carolina the difference between the aggregate freights 
charged or received and those fixed by said commission, and to make a report 
of freights charged or received every three months during the pendency of 
such appeal ; and whenever such difference in freights equals or exceeds the 
penalty of such undertaking the commission may require another to be exe- 
cuted and filed with them. From the time the undertaking first mentioned is 
filed the judgment appealed from shall be vacated ; but a failure for ten days 
to file any additional undertaking required by the commission shall eo instanti 
revive such judgment. Out of the funds paid into the state treasury under 
this section there shall be refunded to shippers the overpaid freight ascer- 
tained by the final determination of the appeal on the recommendation of the 
commission, if application therefor is made within one year from such final 
determination. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1079. Judgment superior court not vacated by appeal. Any freight or 
passenger rates fixed by the commission, when approved or confirmed by the 
judgment of the superior court, shall be and remain the established rates and 
shall be so observed and regarded by an appealing corporation until the same 
shall be changed, revised or modified by the final judgment of the supreme 
court, if there shall be an appeal thereto, and until changed by the corpora- 
tion commission. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1080. Judgment on appeal enforced by mandamus. In all cases in which, 
upon appeal, a judgment of the corporation commission is affirmed, in whole 
or in part, the appellate court shall embrace in its decree a mandamus to the 
appellant to put said order in force, or so much thereof as shall be affirmed. 
1905, c. 107, s. 2. 

1081. Peremptory mandamus to enforce order, when no appeal. If no 
appeal is taken from an order or judgment of the corporation commission 
within the time prescribed by law, but the corporation affected thereby fails 
to put said order in operation, the corporation commission may apply to the 
judge riding the superior court district which embraces Wake county, or to 
the resident judge of said district at chambers, upon ten days' notice, for a 
peremptory mandamus upon said corporation for the putting in force of said 
judgment or order ; and if said judge shall find that the order of said com- 
mission was valid and within the scope of its powers, he shall issue such 
peremptory mandamus. An appeal shall lie to the supreme court in behalf of 
the corporation commission, or the defendant corporation, from the refusal or 
the granting of such peremptory mandamus. 1905, c. 107. 

V. Injunction. 

1082. When granted ; bond. No judge shall grant an injuction, restrain- 
ing order or other process staying or affecting, during the pending of any 
appeal, the enforcement of any determination of the corporation commission 
fixing rates or fares, without requiring as a condition precedent the executing 
and filing with the corporation commission of a justified undertaking in the 
sum of not less than twenty-five thousand dollars for any company whose road 
is of less length than fifty miles, and fifty thousand dollars for any company 



6 N". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION". 

whose road is over fifty miles in length, conditioned that the company will 
make and file with the corporation commission a sworn statement every three 
months during the pending of the appeal of the items of freight, with names 
of shippers, carried over such company's road within the preceding ninety 
days, showing the freight charged and those fixed by the corporation commis- 
sion ; and in the event the determination of the corporation commission 
appealed from is affirmed in part or in whole such company shall within thirty 
days pay into the treasury of North Carolina the aggregate difference between 
the freights collected and those fixed by the final determination of the matter 
appealed. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1083. Restraining order vacated, when. Whenever the aggregate differ- 
ence between the freights collected and those fixed by the corporation commis- 
sion shall equal or exceed the sum specified in the undertaking, the corporation 
commission shall notify the appellant that another justified undertaking in 
like sum and with the same conditions as the original undertaking is required 
to be executed and filed with the corporation commission. A failure to file 
with the corporation commission the sworn statement provided for in the 
preceding section, or any one of them when more than one is required or asked 
for, or a failure to give an additional undertaking when required within 
fifteen days from notice so to do, shall vacate and render null and void any 
restraining order, injunction or other process to stay the enforcement of any 
determination of the corporation commission as to schedules of rates. 1899, 
c. 164, s. 7. 

1084. Suits on injunction bond. When any of the conditions of such 
undertaking are broken it may be sued on and enforced in the name of the 
state of North Carolina on the relation of the corporation commission by sum- 
mons returnable to the superior court of any county in the state at a regular 
term thereof. The solicitor of the district shall prosecute the action in his 
court on behalf of the state, and shall be allowed such fees, to be taxed in the 
bill of costs, as the court may order ; and the attorney-general shall prosecute 
on appeal to the supreme court on behalf of the state and shall be allowed such 
fees, to be taxed in the bill of costs, as the court shall allow. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1085. What recovered ; application of recovery. In cases where the 
sworn statements herein required to be made are not made the whole penalty 
of the undertaking shall be enforced and paid into the state treasury. The 
sums paid into the treasury under the provisions of this section shall be used 
to reimburse the shippers of freights for the excess of freights paid over what 
should have been paid, such reimbursements to be made on recommendation of 
the corporation commission: Provided, application therefor is made within 
one year after the determination of the appeal in which the undertaking was 
given. The recovery in each undertaking shall be applied to such excess of 
freights as has been paid during the period covered by such undertaking. 
1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

VI. Penalties. 

1086. For violating rules. If any railroad company doing business in 
this state by its agents or employees shall be guilty of a violation of the rules 
and regulations provided and prescribed by the commission, and if after due

pay the sum of five hundred dollars for each offense, to be recovered in an 
action to be instituted in the superior court of Wake county, in the name of the

continues to refuse to obey or perform any rule, order or regulation prescribed 
by the corporation commission shall be a separate offense. 1899, c. 164, s. 23. 

1088. Discrimination between connecting lines. All common carriers 
subject to the provisions of this chapter shall according to their powers afford 
all reasonable, proper and equal facilities for the interchange of traffic between

freights to and from their several lines and those connecting therewith, and 
shall not discriminate in their rates and charges against such connecting lines,

obstruct the commission in the discharge of the duties hereby imposed upon it, 
shall forfeit and pay five hundred dollars for each offense, to be recovered in 
an action in the name of the state. A delay of ten days to make and furnish 
such report shall raise the presumption that the same was wilful. 1899* c. 
164, s. 18.

person, such person shall have a right of action and recovery for such wrong 
or injury, in any court having jurisdiction thereof, and the damages to be 
recovered shall be the same as in an action between individuals, except that 
in case of wilful violation of law such railroad company shall be liable to 
exemplary damages : Provided, that all suits under this chapter shall be 
brought within one year after the commission of the alleged wrong or injury.

general or the solicitor of the judicial district in which such penalty has been 
incurred, and the judge before whom the same is tried shall determine the 
amount of compensation to be allowed the attorney general or such solicitor 
prosecuting said action for his services, and such compensation so determined 
shall be taxed as part of the cost. The procedure in such actions, the right 
of appeal and the rules regulating appeals shall be the same as are now 
provided by law in other civil actions. 1899, c. 164, s. 15. 

1093. Remedies cumulative. The remedies given by this chapter to per- 
sons injured shall be regarded as cumulative to the remedies now given or

The railroads so ordered to construct a union depot shall have power to con- 
demn land for such purpose, as in case of locating and constructing a line of

an ordinance of a city or town through which a line of its railroad passes, 
except in the counties of Cumberland, Rockingham, Union and Wayne, regulat- 
ing the speed at which trains may run while passing through said city or 
town, is unreasonable or oppressive, such railroad company may file its peti- 
tion before the corporation commission, setting forth all the facts, and asking 
relief against such ordinance, and that the corporation commission prescribe 
the rate of speed at which trains may run through said municipality. Upon the 
filing of the petition a copy thereof shall be mailed, in a registered letter, to 
the mayor or chief officer of the town or municipality, together with a notice 
from the corporation commission, setting forth that on a day named in the 
notice the petition of the railroad company will be heard, and that the city or 
town named in the petition will be heard at that time in opposition to the 
prayer of the petition. And upon the return day of the notice the corporation 
commission shall hear the petition : Provided, that any hearing granted by 
the corporation commission, as authorized by this section, shall be had at the

be dismissed, and the petitioner shall pay all the costs to be taxed by the clerk 
to the corporation commission. If the corporation commission shall be of the 
opinion that the ordinance is unreasonable, it shall so adjudge; and in addi- 
tion thereto it shall prescribe the maximum rates of speed for passing through 
such town. And thereafter the railroad company may run its trains through 
such town or city at speeds not greater than those prescribed by the corpora- 
tion commission, and the ordinance adjudged to be unreasonable shall not be 
enforced against such railroad company. 1903, c. 552, s. 2. 

1103. When costs on heaeing to fix eate of speed in disceetion of com- 
mission. If the judgment of the corporation commission shall be in favor of

VIII. Rates. 

1104. How fixed. In fixing any maximum rate or charge, or tariff of rates 
or charges for any common carrier, person or corporation subject to the provi- 
sions of this chapter the commission shall take into consideration if proved, 
or may require proof of, the value of the property of such carrier, person or 
corporation used for the public in the consideration of such rate or charge or 
the fair value of the service rendered in determining the value of the property 
so being used for the convenience of the public. It shall furthermore consider 
the original cost of the construction thereof and the amount expended in per- 
manent improvements thereon and the present compared with the original cost 
of construction of all its property within the state; the probable earning 
capacity of such property under the particular rates proposed and the sum 
required to meet the operating expenses of such carrier, person or corporation 
and all other facts that will enable them to determine what are reasonable 
and just rates, charges and tariffs. 1899, c. 1G4, s. 2, subsec. 1. 

1105. What may be carried free. Nothing in this chapter shall prevent 
the carriage, storage or handling of property free or at reduced rates for the 
United States, states or municipal governments or for charitable or educational 
purposes; or for any corporation or association incorporated for the preserva- 
tion and adornment of any historic spot, or to the employees or officers of such 
company or association while traveling in the performance of their duties, pro- 
vided they shall not travel further than ten miles one way on any one trip 
free of charge, or to or from fairs or exhibitions for exhibition thereat ; or the 
free carriage of destitute and homeless persons transported by charitable 
societies, and the necessary agents employed in such transportation, or the free 
transportation of persons traveling in the interest of orphan asylums or homes 
for the aged and infirm, or any department thereof, or ex-Confederate soldiers 
attending annual reunions, or the issuance of mileage, excursion or commuta- 
tion passenger tickets ; or to prohibit any common carrier from giving reduced 
rates to ministers of religion, or to municipal governments for the transporta- 
tion of indigent persons, or to inmates of national homes or state homes for 
disabled volunteer soldiers, and of soldiers' and sailors' orphan homes, includ- 
ing those about to enter and those returning home after discharge under 
arrangements with the boards of managers of said homes ; or to prevent rail- 
roads from giving free carriage to their own officers and employees and mem- 
bers of their families, or to prevent the principal officers of any railroad com- 
pany from exchanging passes or tickets with other railroad companies for their 
officers or employees. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent 
or restrict transportation companies from contracting with newspapers for 
advertising space in exchange for transportation over their lines to such an 
extent as may be agreed upon between the two parties for said consideration. 
The commissioners and their clerks shall be transported free of charge over all 
railroads and other transportation lines which are under the supervision of the 
commission ; and when traveling on official business they may take with them 
experts or other agents whose service they may deem temporarily of public 
importance. 1899, c. 164, s. 22; 1899, c. 642; 1901, c. 679; s. 2; 1901, c. 652;

charged by any carrier of freight, passengers, or express, or by any telegraph 
or telephone company. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1107. Long and short hauls. It shall be unlawful for any common car- 
rier to charge or receive any greater compensation in the aggregate for the 
transportation of passengers or of like kind of property under substantially 
similar circumstances and conditions for a shorter than for a longer distance 
over the same line in the same direction, the shorter being included within the 
longer distance ; but this shall not be construed as authorizing any common 
carrier within the terms of this chapter to charge and receive as great com- 
pensation for a shorter as for a longer distance : Provided, however, that 
upon application to the commission, such common carrier may in special cases 
be authorized to charge less for longer than for shorter distances for the 
transportation of passengers or property ; and the commission may from time 
to time prescribe the extent to which such designated common carrier may be 
relieved from the operation of this section: Provided, that nothing in this 
chapter contained shall be taken as in any manner abridging or controlling the 
rates of freight charged by any railroad in this state for conveying freight 
which comes from or goes beyond the boundaries of the state and on which 
freight less than local rates on any railroad carrying the same are charged by 
such railroads. 1899, c. 164, s. 14. 

1108. Contracts as to rates. All contracts and agreements between rail- 
road companies as to rates of freight and passenger tariffs shall be submitted 
to the commission for inspection and correction, that it may be seen whether or 
not they are a violation of law or of the rules and regulations of said commis- 
sion, and all arrangements and agreements whatever as to the division of 
earnings of any kind by competing railroad companies shall be submitted to 
the commission for inspection and approval in so far as they affect the rules 
and regulations made by the commission to secure to all persons doing business 
with such companies just and reasonable rates of freight and passenger tariffs, 
and the commission may make such rules and regulations as to such contracts 
and agreements as may then be deemed necessary and proper, and any such 
agreements not approved by the commission, or by virtue of which rates shall

in case it shall appear or be made to appear to said board that property subject 
to taxation has been omitted from said list, the board may issue an order 
directing the assessor or lister, whose assessments or failure to assess are 
complained against, to appear with his tax list at a time and place to be stated 
in said order, and the place to be at the office of the board of county commis-

board may make and issue an order that said tax list shall be subject to gen- 
eral review, and the time and place shall be stated in said order at which said 
list shall be reviewed, and under said order the assessor whose assessment or

teen days from the issuance of the order, and the place to be at the office of the 
board of county commissioners at the county-seat, or such other place in said 
county in which said list was made, as said board shall deem most convenient

assessor is required to appear with said list, together with a statement that 
said list will be subjected to general review, and that all persons interested 
therein may be heard at said time, shall be published in a newspaper published

missioners, shall then and there review said tax list and the assessment of 
property therein, and he or they shall have power to determine in accordance 
with law the amount at which said assessment shall be placed, and to change 
the same, so that said assessments may comply with the law. Also to place 
upon said list property omitted therefrom in the same manner as provided in 
the last preceding section. The determination of said board or members 
thereof, acting in said review, shall be placed in a column provided for that 
purpose, and they or he shall proceed in all respects as provided in the last 
preceding section, and the tax officer shall receive the same compensation as 
provided in said section. 1905, c. 590, s. 9.

the next tax list that shall be made, and shall be valued as all other property.

subject to any personal liability on account of the nonpayment of such debt or 
liability of the corporation, but the transferee of any stock so transferred pre-

iner, by examination or otherwise, that any officer, agent, employee, director, 
stockholder or owner of a bank or banking institution has been guilty of a vio- 
lation of the criminal laws of the state relating to banks and banking institu- 
tions, it shall be his duty to hold and detain such person until a warrant can 
be procured for his arrest ; and for such purpose such examiner shall have and 
possess all the powers of a peace officer of such county, and may arrest without

ingly and willingly make any false or fraudulent report of the condition of 
any bank which shall have been examined by him, with the intent to aid or 
abet the officers, owners or agents of such bank in continuing to operate an 
insolvent bank ; or if any such examiner shall receive or accept any bribe or 
gratuity, given for the purpose of inducing him not to file any report of an 
examination of any bank made by" him, or shall neglect to make an examina-

RULES OF PRACTICE 

IN 

CASES AND PROCEEDINGS 

BEFORE THE COURT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA 
CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Public Sessions. 



1. The general sessions of the court for the hearing of contested cases will be 
held at its office in the agricultural building, Raleigh, N. C, on the first Wed- 
nesday of each month at 11 o'clock a. m. When special sessions are held at 
other places such regulations as may be necessary will be made by the court. 

Parties. 

2. Where a complaint concerns anything done or omitted to be done by only 
a single carrier no other need be made a party, but if it relates to joint tariffs, 
or matters in which two or more carriers doing business under a common con- 
trol, management or arrangement for a continuous carriage or shipment, are 
interested, all the carriers constituting such line must be made parties. A 
complaint may embrace several carriers, or lines of carriers, operated sepa- 
rately, in the same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint 
involves substantially the same alleged violation of the law by the several 
carriers or lines. Persons or carriers not parties may apply, in any pending 
case or proceeding, for leave to intervene and to be heard upon the questions 
involved. 

GENERAL RULES. 

Proceedings Before the Court. 

3. All petitions and complaints made before the court for redress of alleged 
grievances, must plainly and distinctly set forth the grounds of complaint; 
the items being numbered and objections all set forth in writing. In like man- 
ner all defenses must be distinctly set forth in writing, and the items num- 
bered as above stated. These specifications, whether of complaint or defense, 
may be accompanied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argu- 
ment, or by any suggestion as to the proper remedy or policy, and may be veri- 
fied by the affidavit of the party complaining or petitioning, taken before any 
person authorized to administer oaths in North Carolina, and when the com- 
plaint or petition is verified, then the answer thereto shall be verified, and the 
verification shall conform to the rules prescribed in The Code of North Caro- 
lina for the verification of pleadings. The parties may also be heard in person 
or by attorney, or by written argument, upon such written statement being first 
filed. 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insufficient to 
show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an answer, serve on the 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 33 

complainant notice for a hearing of the case on the complaint ; and in case of 
the service of such notice, the facts stated in the complaint will be taken as 
admitted. A copy of the notice must at the same time be filed with the court. 
The filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency of 
the complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be made at the 
hearing. 

Service of Papers. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the opposite parties 
to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any party shall have ap- 
peared by attorney, the service upon the attorney shall be deemed proper ser- 
vice upon the party. If party so notified shall fail to answer within ten days 
after such notice, then the court in its discretion may grant the relief de- 
manded. 

Amendments. 

6. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may be allowed 
by the court, in its discretion, to any petition, answer, or other pleading in any 
proceeding before the Commission. 

Adjournment and x Extension of Time. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the application 
of parties in the discretion of the court. 

Stipulations. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the court may, by stipulation, duly 
signed by them and filed with the secretary, agree upon the facts, or any por- 
tion of the facts, they deem to be involved in the controversy, which agreed 
statement shall be regarded and used as evidence. It is desirable that the 
facts be thus agreed upon whenever practicable. 

Hearings. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the court will assign 
a time and place for hearing the same, which will be at its office in Raleigh, 
N. C, at its regular session, unless otherwise ordered. Witnesses will be 
examined orally before the court, unless testimony be taken or facts agreed 
upon as otherwise provided in these rules. The petitioner or complainant must 
in all cases prove the existence of the facts alleged to constitute a violation 
of the act, unless the carrier complained of shall admit the same, or shall fail 
to answer the complaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be proved by 
the carrier, unless admitted by the petitioner. In cases of failure to answer, 
the court will take such proof of the charge as may be deemed reasonable and 
proper, and make such order thereon as the circumstances of the case appear 
to require. 

Witnesses and Depositions. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued by any 
member of the court in all cases and proceedings before it, and witnesses will 
be required to obey the subpoenas served upon them requiring their attendance 
or the production of any books, papers, tariffs, contracts, agreements or docu- 
ments relating to any matter under investigation or pending before the court

i 



34 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

When a subpoena is desired for the production of books, papers or other docu- 
mentary evidence, special application must be made to the court therefor, 
specifying the documentary evidence desired. When a cause is at issue on 
petition and answer, each party may proceed at once to take depositions of 
witnesses in the manner provided by section 1357 of The Code of North Caro- 
lina, and transmit them to the secretary of the commission without making 
any application to or obtaining any authority from the court for that purpose. 

Proposed Findings of Fact. 

11. Upon the final submission of a case to the court either party may sub- 
mit proposed findings of fact for the consideration of the court, which findings 
must embrace only the material facts of the case supposed to be established by 
the testimony. 

Reports. 

12. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Carolina 
shall file in the office of the court quarterly reports showing in detail state- 
ment of freight and passenger earnings, operating expenses, etc., on such 
forms as may be prescribed from time to time by the court. 

STANDARD FREIGHT AND PASSENGER TARIFFS. 

Standard Passenger Tariff. 

First Class. Second Class. 

Twelve years and older SV^c. per mile. 2%c. per mile. 

Over 5 and under 12 years of age One-half first-class fare. 

Rules Governing Transportation of Passengers. 

1. Each passenger shall be entitled to baggage not exceeding one hundred 
and fifty pounds. 

2. No more than the schedule of passenger rates shall be charged where the 
ticket office at any station shall not have been open for a reasonable time 
before the departure from a station of the train upon which the passenger 
intends to be transported. 

3. At junction points, where the incoming trains arrive so near the leaving 
time of the out-going train that it is not practicable for a passenger to procure 
a ticket, no more than the schedule of passenger rates shall be charged. 

4. Railroad companies are authorized to collect the exact mileage for passen- 
ger fares if they shall make the necessary change to enable them to do so ; but 
if not, no more than the nearest amount ending in 5 or shall be charged. 

5. No railroad company shall be allowed to charge more than ten cents for 
full or half-rate between regular stations when the fare would be less than 
that amount : Provided, where the distance is not greater than two miles or 
under the maximum charge for first-class tickets shall be ten cents, and five 
cents for second-class tickets. 

6. No inore than the standard passenger tariff shall be charged passengers 
from flag stations or other stations where tickets are not kept on sale. 

7. When, in consequence of the uncertain time of arrival or departure of a 
delayed train, it is impracticable for tickets to be purchased, no more than the 
regular standard passenger rate shall be charged. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 35 

8. Passengers unprovided with tickets, when opportunity has been afforded 
them by the railroad companies to procure the same, may be required by the 
railroads to pay to the conductor twenty-five cents excess of the fare upon 
receiving from the conductor a drawback ticket for twenty-five cents, which 
shall be cashed upon presentation at any ticket office of the company within 
twenty days after date. 

9. The Commission will consider applications for an advance or reduction in 
the standard tariff for the transportation of passengers, but no change of rates 
shall be of effect or put into force until ratified by the Commission : Provided, 
that this rule shall not be construed as placing any restriction on the privilege 
of railroad companies to make special rates on excursion trains, or to issue 
what are called "commutation or mileage tickets" : Provided, no unjust dis- 
crimination is practiced. 

10. Tickets on sale at any office in a city must be kept on sale at the depot 
ticket-office of the same railroad at the same prices. 

11. That all connecting railroads which are under the management and con- 
trol by lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same company, or at con- 
nection with a different company, shall be required to make close connection 
whenever practicable. 

12. Railroad companies in computing passenger rates between stations where 
fractions of a mile are to be considered, will calculate for the nearest even 
number of miles. Example : For a distance of 10.49 miles or under, charge 
for ten miles ; for 10.50 miles or over, charge for eleven miles, and go on. 

13. It shall be the duty of each railroad company to bulletin at every tele- 
graph station along its line, and other stations if possible, ten minutes in 
advance of the schedule time of arrival of its trains, whether such train is on 
time and if behind its schedule time to state, as near as can be approximated, 
the time of its arrival. The bulletin board shall be placed in a conspicuous 
place at the ticket office, and all notices thereon of arrival and departure of 
trains shall be erased immediately after the departure of trains. 

14. On all mixed trains, carrying passengers, where two coaches are attached, 
first and second-class tickets must be sold. 

Where only one coach is attached, only second-class rates shall be charged, 
unless the coach has separate apartments, then first and second-class rates may 
be charged. 

15. That all common carriers subject to the supervision of the Corporation 
Commission shall provide such means or appliances as may be necessary to 
secure the careful handling of and to prevent injury to any parcel of baggage 
to which a check may be affixed, as provided by law. 

That at all minor stations, where no proper appliances are supplied, and no 
regular depot hand is employed, the train hands shall be required to assist the 
baggage-master, and lift with care all baggage from the car-doors. 

16. All railroad companies, in addition to the usual bell-cord, shall place a 
safety-cord in each coach of the regular passenger trains, running through the 
entire length of the same. 

17. It shall be the duty of the Pullman Car Company, at all stations, on the 
stopping of trains, to have the doors of their cars open for the reception of 
passengers and require the porter to have a step ready for the convenience of 
passengers desiring to enter. 



36 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 

1. All connecting railroads, which are under the management and control, by 
lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same company, shall, for pur- 
poses of transportation, in applying this tariff, be considered as constituting 
but one and the same road, and the rates shall be computed as upon parts of 
one and the same road, unless otherwise specified. 

Distances. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every possible dis- 
tance, the law authorizes the Commission "to ascertain what shall be the limits 
of longer and shorter distances." Five (5) miles has, accordingly, been fixed 
as the limit for a change of freight rates for all distances less than one 
hundred miles; and ten (10) miles for all distances over one hundred miles. 
The commissioners reserve the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme 
cases which work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter of our 
rules. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred (100) miles, 
the following rule will apply : When the mileage does not end in or 5 the 
nearest mileage so ending shall govern the rate. Illustration : For a distance 
of twenty-seven miles charge for twenty-five miles, for a distance of twenty- 
eight miles charge for thirty miles. 

4. When freight is transported any distance greater than one hundred miles, 
if the mileage does not end in 0, then next ten (10) miles group above shall 
govern the rate. Illustration: For one hundred and twenty-one miles charge 
for one hundred and thirty. 

5. For distance under twenty miles or over two hundred and fifty miles, a 
reduction of rates may be made without making a change at all stations short 
of two hundred and fifty miles : Provided, however, that when any railroad 
shall make a reduction of rates for distances over two hundred and fifty miles, 
the same shall apply to similar distances on all the roads controlled by the 
same company, and in no case shall more be charged for a less than a greater 
distance. 

Regulations Concerning Freight Rates. 

6. The freight rates prescribed by the Commission are maximum rates, which 
shall not be transcended by the railroads. They may carry, however, at less 
than the prescribed rates : Provided, that if they carry for less for one person, 
they shall for the like service carry for the same lessened rate for all persons 
except as mentioned hereafter ; and if they adopt less freight rates from one 
station, they shall make a reduction of the same per cent, at all stations along 
the line of the road so as to make no unjust discrimination as against any 
person or locality. But when there are between any two points in this State 
two or more competing roads not under the same management or in the same 
system, then the longer line or lines, in order to give said points the benefit of 
competition, may reduce the rates between said two points below the standard 
tariff, without making a corresponding reduction at all stations along the 
lines of said roads: Provided, said reduction shall not make the rates less 
than the standard tariff rates for the shortest line between said points : Pro- 
vided further, that before taking effect, the proposed change of rates shall be 
submitted to and approved by the Commission. When any special rate is made 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 37 

it shall be submitted to thev Commission for approval, and such special rates 
shall not be withdrawn without thirty days' notice to the Commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger trains may be 
one and a half times that for first-class freight by ordinary freight trains. 

8. No railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any express, 
or other company, decline or refuse to act as a common carrier, to transport 
any article proper for transportation by the train for which it is offered. 

9. Minimum charge for single shipments. See Circular No. 30. 

10. No railroad company doing business in this State shall permit a blockade 
of any class of freights on account of any arrangement existing between it and 
other railroad companies as to the transportation of freight according to per- 
centage or otherwise. 

11. There shall be no secret reduction of rates, nor shall any bonus be given, 
or any rebate paid to any person, but the rates shall be uniform to all, and 
public. 

12. The rates specified for ores, sand, clay, rough stone, common brick, bone, 
lumber, shingles, laths, staves, empty barrels, wood, straw, shucks, hay, fod- 
der, corn in ear, tan-bark, turpentine, rosin, tar, household goods, are maxi- 
mum rates, but the roads are left free to reduce them at discretion, and all 
such rates are exempt from the operation of Rule 6. All complaints as to such 
rates will, on presentation, be duly considered. 

13. When railroad companies are required to load or unload car-load ship- 
ments of classes L, M, N, O and P, or to load car-load shipments of naval 
stores, the actual cost of such service shall be paid by shippers. 

14. Extra Handling. — The charge for handling extra heavy articles, may be 
as follows, viz. : 

Under 2,000 pounds, no charge for extra handling. 

For 2,000 lbs. and under 3,000 lbs $ 3 for extra handling. 

For 3,000 lbs. and under 4,000 lbs 5 for extra handling. 

For 4,000 lbs. and under 5,000 lbs 7 for extra handling. 

For 5,000 lbs. and under 6,000 lbs 8 for extra handling. 

For 6,000 lbs. and under 7,000 lbs 10 for extra handling. 

For 7,000 and over in proportion. 

15. Fertilizers. — This term embraces the following and like articles, when 
intended to be used as fertilizers: Ammonia sulphate, bone black, bones 
ground or dissolved, castor pomace, or fish scrap, guanos, alto vella, fish, 
Navassa, Navassa lump, Peruvian soluble Pacific, nitrate cake, plaster of 
paris, potash — German salts of, muriate of, sulphate of — salt cake, lump and 
ground phosphate, soda — nitrate of and sulphate of — tank stuff, etc. 

For 5,000 lbs. and under 6,000 lbs 8 for extra handling. 

16. Vehicles designed for transportation at carrier's risk must be properly 
protected by the shipper with sufficient covering or packing from all liabilities 
to injury from fire, weather, chafing, or other injury. 

17. In no case shall the amount collected on L. C. L. shipments exceed the 
charge per car-load for the same class of goods. 

18. Railroad companies are not required to receive cotton or other merchan- 
dise and warehouse the same unless the articles offered are in good shipping 
condition, well prepared by the shipper with proper packing and intelligent, 
plain marking, and accompanied with orders for immediate shipping.

shipper, at one time, to one and the same point of delivery, to the same con- 
signee. 

Estimated Weights. 

20. Lumber, coal, lime, brick, stone and all articles for which estimated 
weights are given in classification (except live stock, ale and beer, and empty 
ale and beer packages, L. C. L.), will be taken at actual weight when the 
weight can be ascertained, but when the weight cannot be ascertained, will be 
charged at the following estimated weights. This is not to interfere, however, 
with the duty of receiving agent to weigh, if possible, and correct to actual 
weight :

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered by a per- 
centage, railroad companies which are allowed an increase on the standard 
tariff shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced classification ; but in 
cases in which the classification of any article is raised by percentage, railroad 
companies which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff shall not 
apply said increase to the already increased classification, but only to the 
standard tariff.

24. All depots situated in incorporated towns and cities in this State must be 
kept open each day (Sundays excepted) for the receiving and delivery of 
freight, as follows : From April 1 to September 30, between the hours of 7 
A. M. and 6 P. M. From October 1 to March 31, 7.30 A. M. and 5 o'clock P. M., 
with an interniission in each case of one hour, from 12 o'clock M. to 1 o'clock 
P. M. 

25. Railroad companies whose lines do not exceed ten miles in length may 
charge from any point on their road the rates prescribed for ten miles. 

26. On all shipments of freights not governed by Rule 1, originating and ter^ 
minating in this State, which shall pass over the whole or portions of two or 
more roads not under the same control, the maximum rates charged on such 
shipments shall not be greater than the sum of the local rates on such freights 
less ten (10) per cent, for the distance hauled over each road. The total 
rate thus ascertained on such freights, from the point of shipment to the point 
of destination, shall be divided in such proportions between the roads over 
which such freights pass, so as to give to each road interested in the shipment 
its local rate, less ten (10) per cent., for the distance such shipment is hauled. 
Nothing in this rule shall be construed to prevent the total of any joint rate 
made under this rule from being divided in such proportions between the roads 
interested in the same as they may agree upon, but a failure to so agree 
between the roads interested shall in no way affect the total joint rate to be 
charged and collected on, or work delay in the transportation of such freights, 
or be a subject of appeal to the Commission by the roads at interest. 

27. When railroad rates are affected by water competition the railroads may 
reduce their rates between points so affected without being required to reduce 
intermediate rates: Provided, however, that if complaint is made that such 
competition rates unjustly discriminate against other places or persons the 
commissioners will investigate and rule in each case. 

28. No common carrier shall, for any cause, subject any article of freight to 
unreasonable delay in receiving, delivering or forwarding the same to its desti- 
nation. 

29. When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two routes over 
connecting lines to destination it shall be the duty of the railroad company 
making shipment to forward same by the shortest route, unless the rate 
charged over the longer route does not exceed that of the shorter, or unless 
otherwise ordered by the shipper. 

30. A charge of no more than two dollars per car will be allowed for switch- 
ing or transferring a car from any point on any road to any connecting road or 
warehouse within a space of one mile from starting point ; over one and not 
more than two miles, three dollars; over two miles and not over three miles, 
four dollars, without regard to weight or contents. 

31. When in the transfer of a car between said points it is necessary to pass 
over the line of any intermediate road or roads, the maximum charge of two, 
three or four dollars, as the case may be, shall be equitably divided between 
the roads at interest. 

32. When a charge is made for the transfer of loaded cars between said 
points no additional charge shall be made for the delivery or return of the 
empty cars. 

33. All specials less than our standard rates heretofore granted by carriers 
within the jurisdiction of the Commission, and which do not conflict with the 
law preventing unjust discrimination, until further orders, will be enforced. 



40 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

Posting Tariffs. 

34. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Carolina 
shall post, and keep posted, at each of its respective stations in a conspicuous 
place a copy of the schedules of freight and passenger rates prescribed for said 
road by the Commission, together with a copy of the commissioners' classifica- 
tion, and a table of distances between stations, giving name of each station. 
And when any change in said schedule of rates or classification is made, either 
by the Commission or by any railroad company, a copy of said change shall be 
immediately furnished the office of the commissioners and shall also be posted 
in the same manner as the above. • 

35. The rates prescribed by the Commission shall (except in cases specified) 
apply in either direction. 

EXPLANATORY NOTES: 

In the "Commissioners' Standard Freight Tariff," under the class opposite 
to the distance, if it ends in (and if not, then opposite the next greater dis- 
tance), will be found the rate required.

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 

When any rate in any class in the Standard Tariff is raised or lowered by a 
per cent, the following rules must be observed : 

Fikst. — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of classes C, D, F, J, or 
K, the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as the following examples will 
indicate : 

Ex. 1. — Standard rate 6.5 

25 per cent, added 1.6 

Total 8.1 

From which deduct fraction, leaving desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2.— Standard' rate 9.5 

20 per cent, added 1.9 

Total 11.4 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 11.5 cents. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 41 

Ex. 3. — Standard rate 8. 

20 per cent, added 1.6 

Total 9.6 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 9.5 cents. 

Ex. 4. — Standard rate 5.5 

25 per cent, added 1.3 

Total 6.8 

Adding a unit instead of a fraction, the desired rate is 7 cents. 

Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other class than those 
already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent and estimate half a 
cent or more as one cent, thus : 

Ex. 1.— Standard rate 17. 

20 per cent, added 3.4 

Total 20.4 

Deducting the fraction, the desired rate is 20 cents. 

Ex. 2.— Standard rate 18. 

20 per cent, added 3.6 

Total 21.6 

Estimating the fraction as a unit, the desired rate is 22 cents. 

Third. — In making reductions, observe the same manner of placing figures 
before deducting the percentage. 

Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freights where a rate per car- 
load is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car-load, and estimate their charge 
pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge. 

RULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION OF DEPOTS. 

First. — From and after Wednesday, the 26th day of April, 1899, no change of 
freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their present location, nor the 
suspension of the sale of tickets, or the receiving or forwarding of freights 
from stations now in use for such purposes, will be permitted without the con- 
sent of this Commission published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construction of 
depot buildings must be filed in the North Carolina Corporation Commission 
office, with all information needed for a full and proper understanding of all 
interests to be affected thereby. 

RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF 

LIVE STOCK. 

The weights given below are estimated and not actual, and are used simply 
to get the rating on live stock. To illustrate: One horse, mule or horned 
animal is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 pounds of any kind of second- 
class freight at carrier's risk and fourth-class at owner's risk. Therefore, the 
freight charges for fifty miles on one horse, mule or horned animal is the same 
as on 2,000 pounds of second-class freight, and would be, according to the

The rates on live stock as given in this tariff are based on the following 
maximum valuations : 

Horses and mules not over $120.00 each. 

Horned cattle not over 50.00 each. 

Stallions, jacks and bulls not over 150.00 each. 

Fat hogs and fat calves not over 15.00 each. 

Lambs, stock hogs, stock calves, not over 5.00 each. 

Race horses, stallions, jacks, bulls and other high-priced animals, when ship- 
pers are not willing to have the same transported at above valuations, will be 
taken only at the following rates on valuation given : 

Value from $150.00 to $400.00 add to regular rate 30 per cent. 
Value from $400.00 to $600.00 add to regular rate 40 per cent. 
Value from $600.00 to $800.00 add to regular rate 60 per cent. 
Value from $800.00 to $1,000.00 add to regular rate 100 per cent. 
Over $1,000 subject to special rate by contract. 

Live stock will be taken at the released or owner's risk rate only when con- 
tract is executed by shipper and station agent. 

Mixed shipment of cattle, hogs, lambs, etc., will be taken in car-loads at car- 
load rates for cattle, but carrier will be released from damage to animals 
caused by their own acts, or to each other, and from escape, if not haltered, 
suffocation, exhaustion from heat or cold. 

Sucking calves accompanying cows will be charged for at rate for single 
calves. 

Sucking colts accompanying mares will be charged for at double the rate of 
single calves. 

The word "calves" used in these rules and regulations applies only to calves 
under nine months old; and the words "yearling cattle" to cattle over nine 
months and under eighteen months old. 

Pigs, hogs, calves, etc., boxed, crated, or in portable pens, taken at actual 
w T eight, carrier's risk, first-class ; owner's risk, second-class. 

In no case shall the charge for less than a car-load of live stock exceed the 
charge for a car-load. 

Shippers will be expected to feed, water and care for their stock at their 
own expense. When food is furnished by carrier, a charge will be made for 
the same and collected from consignee. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 



43 



One, two or three cars of live stock will entitle the owner or his agent to be 
carried free to point of destination of consignment, on the train with the stock, 
to care for the same. Four to seven cars inclusive, belonging to one owner, 
two men in charge, and eight cars or more belonging to one owner, three men 
in charge, which number is the maximum number of attendants that will be 
carried free for one shipment. 

Return transportation not given to owners, agents or attendants.

RULE I. 

No storage or demurrage charges, however, shall in any case be allowed 
unless notice of the arrival of goods has been given to the owner or consignee 
thereof by the railroad company, and it shall be the duty of such railroad 
company to give prompt notice to consignee of the arrival of goods, together 
with the contents, weight and amount of freight charges due thereon as shown

RULE II. 

For storage of package freights and all freight less than car-load, unloaded 
in depot or warehouse, which is not removed by the owner thereof from the 
custody of the railroad company within forty-eight hours (not including Sun- 
days and legal holidays), a charge of storage for each day or fraction of a day 
that such consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one-cent 
per hundred pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one 
package or lot for any one consignee, may be made ; but not more than one dol- 
lar per day for any one consignment not in excess of a car-load. 

RULE III. 

All car-load freight taking track delivery and such as is to be unloaded by 
consignee, which is not unloaded from cars containing same within forty- 
eight hours (not including Sundays and legal holidays) after the car or cars 
are placed accessible for unloading, may be subject to a charge of one dollar 
per car for each day or fraction of a day that said car or cars remain loaded : 
Provided, however, that seventy-two hours shall be allowed for the unloading 
of fertilizers, brick and the following commodities, when in bulk only : Cotton 
seed, cotton-seed hulls, coal, coke, fertilizing material, grain, lime, tan-bark

delays in transit cars are bunched and more cars than one are received at 
same time, no demurrage shall be made for excess over one car : Provided, at 
least one car shall be unloaded daily. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 45 



RULE IV. 



When consignors ship goods, consigned to themselves or order, it shall be the 
duty of the railroad company to give legal notice to such consignees or persons 
to whom shipping directions order delivery. This notice may be addressed by 
mail to the consignee at point of delivery, and demurrage will begin as in 
other cases of notice by mail ; and the mailing of such notice shall be sufficient 
notice in such cases, whether the consignee actually received the same or not. 

RULE V. 

The time allowed for removing freight before storage or demurrage charges 
apply will be computed from 7 o'clock A. M. of the day following date of notice 
(Sundays and legal holidays excepted). 

RULE VI. 

A consignee living more than five (5) miles from the depot, and whose 
freight is destined to his residence or place of business so located, shall not be 
subject to storage or demurrage charges allowed in the above rules until a 
sufficient time has elapsed after notice for said consignee to remove said goods 
by the exercise of due diligence: Provided, that in the delivery of car-load 
freight railroads will hot be required in any case to hold freight free of de- 
murrage for a longer period than five (5) days after notice, except as other- 
wise provided in Rule II. 

RULE VII. 

Where, upon the request of an intending shipper, the railroad company 
places a car or cars at a reasonably accessible point on its team tracks or on a 
private track designated by the shipper, free loading time shall expire forty- 
eight hours (not including Sundays or legal holidays) from the time such car 
or cars are so placed ; and thereafter a demurrage charge of not more than one 
dollar per car per day or fraction of a day may be assessed and collected on 
all such cars as have not been tendered to the railroad company with shipping 
instructions. 

RULE VIII. 

When any railroad company fails to deliver freights at the depot or to place 
loaded cars at an accessible place for unloading within forty-eight hours (not 
including Sundays and legal holidays), computed from 7 o'clock A. M. the day 
after the arrival of same, the shipper or consignee shall be paid one dollar 
per day for each day or fraction of a day said delivery is so delayed: Pro- 
vided, the railroad company may require the payment of freight before de- 
livery. 

RULE IX. 

Where a shipper makes application in writing for a car or cars to be loaded 
with any kind #ff freight, and the railroad company fails to furnish same

car is not loaded, to/pay trackag^; if the car is /loaded, then the said two 
dollars sh/11 be refunded to the shipper with the bill of lading. 

RULE X. 

(bepealed.) 

RULE XL 

Whenever the weather during the period of free time is so severe, inclement 
or rainy that it is impracticable to secure means of removal or loading of 
freight, or where from the nature of the goods removal or loading would cause 
injury or damage, such time shall be added to the free period, and no demur- 
rage charges shall be allowed for such additional time. This rule applies to 
the state of the weather during business hours. 

RULE XII. 

The Commission reserves the right to hear and grant application to suspend 
the operation of these rules upon complaint of abuse, or whenever justice 
shall demand this course. 

RULE XIII. 

LOCAL TRANSFER AND SWITCHING CHARGES. 

Railroad companies shall furnish shippers cars for loading, and shall also 
accept from each other cars loaded at warehouses or side-tracks of one road

Rules governing transportation of high explosives : 



High explosives, such as atlas, hercules, giant, 
dittmar, commercial aetna, hecla and other nitro- 
glycerine powders; dynamite, nitro-glycerine, gly- 
noin oil, nitroleum, blasting oil, nitrated oil or pow- 
der, mixed with any such oil or fibre, saturated with 
any such articles or substances, will be received for 
transportation only at steamship or railroad compa- 
nies' option only under the following conditions: 

First.— Shipments to be packed in strong boxes, 
not too large to be readily handled by one person, 
and each package to be plainly marked "Explosive," 
"Dangerous," on top and on one side or on one end. 

Second. — It is understood that in these articles 
the nitro-glycerine is thoroughly absorbed in char- 
coal, sawdust, infusorial earth, wood fibre, carbonate 
of magnesia, or other similar substances, and that 
the amount of the nitro-glycerine is such that the 
temperature on the hottest summer day will not 
occasion any leakage; also that the powder formed 
by that absorbent material and the nitro-glycerine is 
always made up into cartridges and never put into 
the boxes in bulk. Should any package show out- 
ward signs of any oily stain, or other indication that 
absorption is not perfect, or that the amount of 
nitro-glycerine is greater than the absorbent can 
carry, the packages must be refused in every in- 
stance and must not be allowed to remain on the 
property of the carrier. 

Third.— Nitrate or other explosive preparations 
not in accordance with above specifications (except 



ordinary black powder) will in no case be received 
for shipment. 

Fourth. — Shipments must be so loaded that 
boxes will lie bottom side down, it being understood 
that the cartridges are so placed in the boxes that 
they will lie on their sides and never on their ends 
when so loaded. The boxes must be so placed in car 
that they can not fall to the floor under any circum- 
stances. 

Fifth. — Shipments of common black powder 
may be received if packed in good, substantial iron 
or wooden kegs, packages not to exceed one hundred 
and fifty pounds in weight, unless for export, when 
larger packages will be received. 

Sixth.— In no case will percussion caps, explod- 
ers, safety squibs, fulminators, friction matches or 
any other article of like nature be loaded in same car 
with any of the above explosives. There can not be 
too great care exercised in this matter. 

Seventh.— Safety-fuse will be received for ship- 
ment at any time it is offered and the restrictions in 
regard to shipping powder do not apply to it. 

Eighth. — As special powder cars are not in 
general service among roads, agents must know 
that none of the above explosive substances are 
loaded at their stations in old cars, having loose 
boards or cracks in the roof or sides. Cars for car- 
rying these explosives must be first-class in every 
respect ; must be tight everywhere, and must have 
doors that can be closely shut, leaving no cracks for

Rules governing transportation of high explosives — Continued. 



sparks to get in. When explosives are carried in 
full car-loads, the doors must be stripped, except 
when the cars are equipped with the new Wagner car 
doors, which must never be stripped. Agents must 
refuse to receive from connecting lines cars loaded 
with explosives, unless the requirements of this 
section have been complied with. 

Ninth. — Every car containing any of the above 
explosive substances, either full car-load or small 
package, must be plainly marked on both sides 
"Powder — Handle Carefully," so that those having 
charge of it will not do anything ignorantly to in- 
cur danger. This should be done by the shipper of 
full car-loads, and by the agent when packages are 
loaded in car at his station. Cars containing explo- 
sives received from connecting lines, if not marked 
when received, must be marked by the agent at the 
connecting point. Agents will be held strictly re- 



sponsible that no car containing explosives leaves 
their stations until it is properly marked. 

Tenth.— Agents must notify conductors when- 
ever a car containing explosives is to be taken from 
their stations ; and conductors must not take from 
any station or siding any car known to contain ex- 
plosive substances unless Rules Eight and Nine have 
been complied with, and such cars must be placed 
in their train as near the middle as possible. 

Eleventh.— Agents should notify all the ship- 
pers in their neighborhood of these requirements. 

Twelfth. — The law provides heavy penalties, 
both to shippers and common carriers, for a viola- 
tion of these rules, and agents and shippers should 
be careful to see that such shipments are put up, 
marked and forwarded only under their proper 
names and in accordance with these provisions.

COMMISSIONERS CLASSIFICATION" OF FREIGHT. 



V2:\ 



Household goods and old furniture, subject to the following rules, viz. 



1— Each article must be plainly marked or tagged. 

2— Bundles of bedding, trunks of clothing, house- 
hold goods or similar articles (not furniture) will 
not be received for transportation unless packed. 
Chests of similar articles must be strapped or 
securely nailed. This does not apply to house- 
hold goods, C. L. 

3 — Any agent receiving this class of freight con- 
trary to the foregoing rules will be charged with 
such expense (for boxing or transportation) as 
may be necessary to forward goods to destina- 
tion without delay. 

4 — Bills of lading and way-bills must designate 
character and number of packages. 

5— These instructions apply to old and second-hand 
furniture, clothing, bedding, etc.; not to new 
articles. 



6— Shipments designated to points beyond the South- 
eastern Freight Association territory must be 
released and prepaid, and the original release 
attached to way-bill accompanying the ship- 
ment. 

7 — In all cases where limitation of value is ex- 
pressed in the classification, it must be written 
out or stamped in full upon bills of lading*, and 
shippers must be required to accept in writing 
the limitations expressed. Agents must re- 
spect this rule and require acceptance by the 
shipper. 

8 — The classification of "household goods and old 
furniture" will not cover shipments of second- 
hand furniture, shipped by furniture dealers, or 
for sale. Such shipments must be charged for 
at regular furniture rates.

per mile rnn each way, and will return the empty 
tank to point of shipment without charge. 

Shipments of above articles at rates authorized 
are entirely at owner's risk of leakage and loss or 
damage by fire. 

Petroleum and its products in tank cars will be 
delivered only when consigned to parties at points 
at which they have proper unloading and storage 
facilities; and when shipments in tank cars are con- 
signed to parties who have not such facilities the 
shipments will be returned to the shippers at their 
risk and expense.

Cotton-seed oil, in barrels, governed by the following' rules, viz. 



First. — Inasmuch as the gross tare and net weight 
of each barrel is plainly marked on the head of the 
barrel, when shipments are loaded at the mills 
agents at shipping points will require shippers to 
load marked-head up, ascertaining the gross weight 
from each barrel and billing accordingly. 

Second.— In cases where shippers fail to so load, 
agents will carefully weigh on track scales and bill 
at weight so ascertained. 

Third.— When shipments are hauled to depots, 
the gross weight must be ascertained from each 
barrel. 



Fourth. — In cases where billing fails to show 
shipments to have been weighed at point of origin 
or in transit, receiving lines must in all cases bill at 
weights ascertained in accordance with Rules 1 and 2. 

If there are no track scales at the junction points, 
weights must be ascertained at destination. By 
destination is meant the point where final delivery 
is effected or delivery is made to connecting lines at 
the gateways of this Association. 

Fifth.— The minimum C. L. weight of cotton-seed 
oil in barrels will be 24,000 pounds.

EXPRESS FREIGHT CLASSIFICATION. 



RULES. 



1. Graduated rates apply to matter weighing- 
less than 100 pounds when the rate is under $2.00 
(I) per 100 pounds and to matter weighing less 
than 50 pounds when the rate is $2.00 (I) or more 
per 100 pounds. Example:— Between points 
where the rate per 100 pounds is $1.75 (H) a box 
weighing 73 pounds must be charged for at the 
graduated rate under $1.75 (H), which makes -the 
proper charges on "over 70 to 75 pounds" $1.50. 

Packages exceeding 7 pounds carried by more 
than one company, graduated for each company 
unless otherwise instructed. 

2. When the rate between any two points is 
not given in the graduated rates, use the next 
higher rate for making price, but do not charge 
more than for 100 pounds at the actual rate. 
Example:— The correct charge for 75 pounds at 
80 cents per 100 pounds would be 80 cents, and not 
$1.00, according to the graduate on 75 pounds at 
$1.00. If the rate exceeds $20.00 (CC) per 100 
pounds, charge pound rates, but never less than 
$20.00 (CC) graduated rate for same weight. 

3. When the rate per 100 pounds is $2.00 (I) or 
more, charge pound rates for 50 pounds or over; 
but the charge for less than 50 pounds in weight 
must not be greater than the charge for 50 pounds. 
If less than $2.00 (I) per 100 pounds, charge 
graduated rates. 

Two or more packages weighing each 20 pounds 
or over forwarded by one shipper at the same time 
to one consignee may be charged for on the aggre- 
gate weight as above. 

Packages weighing less than 20 pounds each, 
shipped as in the foregoing section, may be aggre- 
gated, provided they are estimated and charged 
for as weighing 20 pounds each. Actual weight 
only must be entered on the way-bill. 

If articles of different classes are aggregated, 
the charge must be made at the rate applying to 
the highest class. 

To properly carry out the above provisions in 
regard to aggregating the weights and charges on 
two or more packages sent by one shipper to one 
consignee, receiving clerks and wagon men are 
hereby instructed that in all cases when two or 
more articles are shipped at the same time to one 
address, to mark distinctly on each and every 
article the number receipted for and the hour of 
the day, thus: 3 packages 11 a. m.; 2 packages 
4 p. m. 

All matter must be charged for at actual gross 
weight at the time of shipment, unless otherwise 
specially provided for. Estimated weights on 
shipments usually made with ice are only to be 
applied When ice is used. When no ice is used 
gross weights must be charged. 

4. Extra Rate Charges.— On matter subject 
to extra rate, as one and one-half or double rate, 
find graduated rate according to tariff, and then add 
one-half, or double it, as required. Example:— 
If a package weighs 25 pounds rated at double 
rate, and the rate to destination is $1.00 (E) per 
100 pounds, the charge for 20 to 25 pounds is 50 
cents; double this, $1.00 is the proper amount. 

5. Valuation Charges.— When the value of j 
any merchandise shipment (C. O. D. or otherwise) | 
exceeds $5.00, the following additional charge 
must be made on value: (Charge for value whether 
insured or not). 

When merchandise rate is $1.00 or less per 100 
pounds, 5 cents for each $100 value or fraction 
thereof. 



When merchandise rate exceeds $1.00 and not 
more than $3.00 per 100 pounds, 10 cents for each 
$100 value or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds $3.00 and not 
more than $8.00 per 100 pounds, 15 cents for each 
$100 value or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds $8 00 per 100 
pounds, 20 cents for each $100 value or fraction 
thereof. 

These rates must not be applied to shipments of 
money or bonds, being intended to apply only to 
packages or shipments of merchandise, jewelry 
and valuable papers. 

The charges for valuation above given are to be 
made on the through rate whether carried by one 
or more companies, and in the latter case are to be 
divided between the companies carrying on the 
same basis as said companies divide the trans- 
portation charges, except as noted below. 

7. C. O. D. Matter.— The letters "C. O. D." 
and amount to be collected must be plainly marked 
upon each article with which a bill is sent to be 
collected on delivery, and a similar entry made 
upon the way-bill. If shipper requires collection 
of charges for return of money, the C. O. D. enve- 
lope and package must be plainly marked "C. O. 
D. $ and return charges" and so way-billed. 

Allow examination of C. O. D. matter only upon 
written authority of shipper endorsed by agent at 
shipping point. When such authority is endorsed 
on the transfer envelope, it shall also be accepted. 
Such endorsement not to be made until shippers 
sign an agreement releasing the company from all 
loss incident to such examination. 

All orders to deliver C. O. D. goods without col- 
lecting C. O. D. must have the approval of the 
agent of the company at the shipping point. 

When C. O. D. matter is, by order of shipper, 
through the agent at point of shipment, delivered 
without collecting, return the C. O. D. bill and 
envelope way-bill free. 

If C. O. D. matter is refused, or can not be de- 
livered, the shipper must be immediately notified, 
and if not disposed of within thirty days after 
such notice, it may be returned subject to charges 
both ways. 

C. O. D. matter, and paid C. O. D.'s returned to 
shipper, must take same route and pass through 
the hands of same company or companies as when

DECISIONS 



ADJUSTMENT OF COMPLAINTS. 



OPINION OF SUPREME COURT IN CASE OF DENNIS SIMMONS LUM- 
BER COMPANY v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY ON 
APPEAL FROM THE NORTH CAROLINA CORPORATION COMMIS- 
SION. 

Clark, C. J. A petition was filed before the Corporation Commission by 
The Dennis Simmons Lumber Company, whose plant is located at Elm City, 
asking that the defendant be required to put in track scales for weighing lum- 
ber shipped in car-load lots from that point. It was in evidence that the 
defendant had such scales at twenty-one other points on its North Carolina and 
Virginia division, at which there were saw-mills, among them Weldon, Tillery, 
Parmele, Washington, and Rocky Mount ; that on the lumber shipped by the 
plaintiff at Elm City it paid $30,385 freight in 1903, being more freight than 
was paid on car-load shipments at several points where the defendant had put 
in such scales ; that the scales, if put in, would cost the defendant about $1,000 ; 
that the defendant offered to put in such scales if the plaintiff would add one- 
fourth of a cent per 1,000 pounds to its present rate of eight cents, which would 
cost the plaintiff very nearly $950 additional per annum ; that there was very 
little car-load freight requiring the use of such scales shipped from Elm City 
except that shipped by the petitioner, and that the plaintiff had now to ship 
its lumber unweighed and would pay freight upon its estimated weight, which 
would be corrected when the lumber was later weighed at Rocky Mount or Pin- 
ner's Point, at which places en route the defendant had track scales ; the plain- 
tiff objected to this latter arrangement because it gave it no opportunity to see 
to the correctness of the weighing, and gave in evidence of serious inaccuracies 
in the weights as thus made elsewhere and reported to them. 

Upon the above evidence the Corporation Commission found the facts in 
accordance therewith and ordered that "the defendant furnish track scales at 
Elm City for the purpose of weighing all car-load shipments from that point." 
Upon appeal by the defendant to the Superior Court the evidence was sub- 
stantially the same, except the additional fact that the petitioner expected to 
get through cutting timber at Elm City in two years, when its plant would be 
removed to Kenly, another point on the defendant's road, where it would have 
ten years' cutting, and the scales could be removed to that point for the same 
use. The plaintiff tendered the following issues : 

1. Is it reasonable that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company be re- 
quired for the convenience of shippers of freight to put in track scales at Elm 
City? 



176 N". C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION. 

2. Are track scales a necessary convenience for the use of shippers of freight 
at Elm City? 

At the close of the plaintiff's evidence the defendant offered no evidence, but 
demurred to the plaintiff's evidence. The plaintiff asked the Court to instruct 
the jury to answer both issues "Yes." To the refusal of the Court to submit 
the issues tendered, and also to the refusal to instruct the jury as prayed, the 
plaintiff excepted. The Court held with the defendant on the ground as stated 
in the judgment that the Corporation Commission "had no power under the 
law to make the order appealed from, sustained the demurrer on that ground, 
and reversed the judgment" of the Corporation Commission. 

There was error in the judgment that the Corporation Commission "had no 
power under the law to make the order appealed from." The power of the 
Legislature to supervise, regulate and control the rates and conduct of common 
carriers has come down to us from the remotest times of the common law, and 
that this regulation may be exercised either directly or through a commission 
has been repeatedly held by this Court and by the Supreme Court of the United 
States. Railroad Connection Case, 137 N. C, at p. 15, and cases there cited. 
The contest here is simply and substantially a reiteration of the issue in that 
case, which is whether the State, through its Corporation Commission, has 
power to exercise a "general control and supervision of railroads" within this 
State in their dealings with the public. 

Section 1 of the act creating the Commission provides that it "shall have 
such general control and supervision of all railroads, * * companies, or 
corporations engaged in the carrying of freight or passengers * * necessary 
to carry into effect the provisions of this act." Section 2 empowers and directs 
the Commission "to make just and reasonable rules and regulations for the 
handling of freight and baggage at stations." Section 17 provides that "all 
railroad companies in this State shall on demand issue duplicate freight re- 
ceipts to shippers, in which shall be stated the class or classes of freight 
shipped and the freight charges over the road giving the receipt." 

A literal compliance with the last clause would require on demand of the 
shipper that the articles shipped be weighed in every instance, that the shipper 
may see for himself what he must pay. But inasmuch as at many stations 
the quantity of freight shipped in car-load lots would make it an unnecessary 
burden to require at such points means of weighing car-loads to ascertain the 
freight to be charged, the Corporation Commission, under the further clause, 
Section 2 (12), to "require depot accommodations commensurate with the busi- 
ness and revenue," has not required track scales at all points, but has made 
reasonable rules for regulating, by a standing estimate, the weight in car-load 
lots of different articles shipped from such stations. But this is not in deroga- 
tion of the right and duty of the Commission to require track scales or other 
proper facilities for weighing car-load freight to be put in at such points as the 
quantity of business may justify it. The Commission can order new depots 
(Laws 1899, eh. 164, sec. 2, (12) ) established wherever they are needed (R. R. 
Co. v. Minn.. 193 U. S., 63), and of course has the lesser power to require 
proper facilities at those already established. This sub-section provides that 
the Commission may require "the erection of depot accommodations commen- 
surate with such business and revenue." 

The traffic manager of the defendant, on the trial before the Corporation 
Commission, in his evidence, rested his opposition largely upon the ground that 
he "did not wish a precedent set that the Corporation Commission could order 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 177 

track scales put in anywhere, because they might order them at points where 
the business would not justify it." His defense and the judgment below are to 
the same effect, i. e., a denial of the power of the Corporation Commission to 
require such accommodations to be rendered the public. But this is error. 
The power does exist. It cannot be unreasonably exercised, and such orders 
are subject to review by the Superior Court and by this Court. The Court 
should have left the reasonableness of the order to the jury upon proper 
instructions as to the law. The ruling that the Commission "had no power" to 
make such orders deprived the complainant of any opportunity of presenting 
his contentions as to the reasonableness of the order for review. The traffic 
manager's view (which was sustained by the Court below) leaves such orders 
absolutely to the railroad's own will and pleasure, and if its refusal is un- 
reasonable and unjust, there would be no correction. 

It was precisely for this reason that the Corporation Commission was 
created — an impartial body representing neither the shipper nor the railroad — 
to supervise and control the operations of these great corporations, that justice 
may be done shippers and the public by reasonable orders and requirements, 
such orders being subject, if unreasonable, to review by the same tribunals 
which protect and safeguard the lives, the liberty, and the property of every 
citizen in the land — the courts with their juries and judges. It is in this way 
that a demand like that made by the petitioner in this case shall be held reason- 
able or unreasonable, and not by the arbitrary and irreviewable decision of 
the defendant. It would be as just to place the granting of the demand in the 
irreviewable power of the shipper as to give the refusal of the request to the 
other party. The Corporation Commission was created as an impartial tri- 
bunal to decide such matters, "to have general control and supervision of all 
railroad * * companies or corporations, and of all other corporations en- 
gaged in carrying freight or passengers." "Track scales" are not specifically 
mentioned in the act, but there is the power to "require depot accommodations 
commensurate with the business and revenue" at the respective stations, and 
to require "repairs or additions" to any station, "the removal or establishment 
of a station," the raising or lowering the tracks, etc., to promote the "conven- 
ience or accommodation of the public." There was no intention to give a 
schedule of the thousands of appliances used in handling the business of comr 
mon carriers, nor to enumerate the countless dealings between them and their 
patrons, which such Commission should supervise. The clearly declared pur- 
pose was to put the control and supervision of the whole matter in the hands 
of an impartial commission with power to make reasonable rules and orders, 
subject to the right of appeal by either party — the shipper or the carrier — to 
the courts, instead of leaving such dealings to tbe unrestricted will of one 
party, the carrier. 

This appeal rests solely upon the denial of power to make any order in the 
premises. It cannot be said that there was no evidence tending to show that 
the order was reasonable. The defendant had put in track scales at other 
points where fewer car-loads were shipped. It offered to put in the scales if 
the petitioner would pay higher rates (amounting annually to nearly the full 
cost of scales and of putting them in) than was paid by shippers at points 
where such scales had been put in. Indeed, this was a discrimination against 
the petitioner. The petitioner had for five years been denied its request for 
like facilities with the stations shipping less lumber, and it should not be 

1 12 



178 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

deemed unreasonable, per se, to order such facilities because only two years 
remained. Besides, the defendant could remove the scales when no longer 
needed. At least, there was evidence to submit the reasonableness of the order 
to the jury. Under the statute, "depot accommodations should be commen- 
surate with the business and revenue." Certainly it would have been a dis- 
crimination to have required, as the defendant proposed, that the defendant 
would put in the scales in consideration of adding one-fourth cent to the rate 
of eight cents now charged the petitioner, being about $950 per year for weigh- 
ing (as was the defendant's duty) the petitioner's lumber. The petitioner was 
not unreasonable in asking that the lumber be weighed there instead of at 
Pinner's Point, especially in view of the admission that the weights at the 
latter point, as reported thence, had varied near 25 per cent, per car-load on 
the same class of lumber. 

The defendant pressed the point that this petition "affected only one point 
and one shipper" and was therefore a discrimination. All such petitions and 
orders must necessarily apply to the one station where the additional facility 
is demanded. If the defendant itself was passing upon the application it 
would only consider the necessity for it at that point. It would be unreason- 
able to the defendant to apply such order to all stations. Nor is it material to 
the defendant that the $30,385 freight was paid on car-load lots shipped by one 
shipper, there being only 42 car-loads shipped by others. It is not the number 
of shippers, but the number of car-loads to be weighed, which is the test 
whether it is reasonable to have facilities for weighing car-loads upon track 
scales at that point. The petitioner itself consists of several persons. It is not 
to be discriminated against because it is a corporation. 

We were more inclined to be impressed with the argument that the petitioner 
would only cut lumber two years longer at that point ; but on the other hand, 
the petitioner had already shipped lumber from that point for five years, dur- 
ing much of which time they had been in vain asking this facility that they 
might see their lumber weighed, and the freight for the two years to come to 
be paid by the petitioner would be over $60,060, which would well seem to jus- 
tify the furnishing track scales at a cost of $1,000 (which the defendant had 
put in at several points making smaller shipments), especially taken in con- 
nection with the further evidence that the petitioner has ten years' cutting at 
Kenly, another station on the defendant's road, to which the track scales can 
then be moved, if the car-load shipments at Elm City will not justify keeping 
them there. 

It was error to hold that the Corporation Commission "had no power" to 
make the order, and it was also error to refuse to submit to the jury the issues 
tendered by the plaintiff as to the reasonableness of the order and the necessity 
for such appliances for shippers of freight at Elm City. 

Not only was the plaintiffs request to submit issues as to the reasonableness 
and necessity for the order refused by the Court, but the Court did not pass 
upon them itself, for, instead of ruling upon the defendant's demurrer to the 
evidence upon its merits, the Court held, ex mero motu, that the Commission 
had no jurisdiction of such cause of action, and no cause of action was stated, 
for it reversed the order on the ground, as stated in the judgment, because "the 
Corporation Commission had no power to make the order applied for." If such 
ruling was error, we must so hold, for it is the only question presented by the 
appeal, and the case must go back that the Court or the jury, upon proper in- 
structions, as the case may be, may pass upon the reasonableness and necessity 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 179 

of the order in controversy. This is not the case where a demurrer to the 
evidence is sustained on the merits, but here, the ruling that the Corporation 
Commission had no jurisdiction because of want of power, in fact cut the 
Court off from any ruling upon the demurrer to the evidence. 

It may be that upon the reinstatement of the case and trial, the defendant 
may be able to put in evidence presenting sufficient reasons why the order 
sought is not reasonable and just, or in the lapse of time since, the timber may 
have been cut off so that the scales are not needed (if so, of course a nonsuit 
will be taken) ; or it may be that the petitioner or others at that station may 
have acquired timber making the scales necessary. These will be appropriate 
matters to put in evidence at such trial (if the application for the order is not 
withdrawn), but do not effect the sole point before us, which is as to the power 
of the Corporation Commission to make the order. The ruling in effect was 
that there was a defect of jurisdiction in that the Corporation Commis- 
sion had no power to make such order, and was error.

The Wysong & Miles Company 

v. 

Southern Railway Company. 

To the Honorable the JSiorth Carolina Corporation Commission: 

Your petitioner, complaining of the defendant, alleges: 

First. That it, said petitioner, is a manufacturing corporation duly or- 
ganized and existing under and by virtue of the laws of the State of North 
Carolina, and having its principal office and place of business in the city of 
Greensboro, North Carolina. 

Second. That the defendant, the Southern Railway Company, is a common 
carrier, organized under the laws of the State of Virginia, and is the lessee of 



190 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

and controlling and operating a line of railway within the State of North 
Carolina under the corporate name of the North Carolina Railroad Company, 
which said line of railway runs from Goldsboro in said State via Greensboro 
to Charlotte in said State. 

Third. That the petitioner has its manufacturing plant near to, that is to 
say, within a distance of less than one hundred and twenty-five (125) feet of 
the North Carolina Railroad Company, and in the course of the year it han- 
dles great volumes of freight, having during the year ending November 30, 
1904, paid to the said Southern Railway Company the sum of $1,630.16 on 
incoming freights, and its shipments of outgoing freights are estimated to 
amount to the sum of $2,030.16. 

Fourth. That it is of the utmost necessity to the petitioner that it be fur- 
nished with side-track facilities to the end that it may handle its business 
with promptness and dispatch. Said business being the manufacture of heavy 
machinery, the lack of said side-track facilities causes it great expense and 
inconvenience as well as delay to the Southern Railway Company in promptly 
releasing cars loaded with heavy machinery consigned to the petitioner. 

Fifth. Your petitioner further showeth that the defendant, the Southern 
Railway Company, could construct a siding fully ample to accommodate this 
petitioner and give it the requisite facilities for handling its business by build- 
ing a side-track a distance of not more than two hundred and twenty-five feet, 
and that the cost of such side-track, as it is informed and believes, would not 
exceed the sum of $450, and that the freights received by the Southern Rail- 
way Company from your petitioner are far in excess of this sum every year, 
as will be shown by reference to the figures above set out. 

Sixth. Your petitioner further showeth unto the Court that it is now and 
always has been ready and willing to comply with any reasonable demands or 
regulations on the part of said Southern Railway Company, and hereby prof- 
fers to comply with all such reasonable demands and regulations, but it is 
informed and believes that the Southern Railway Company willfully, arbitra- 
rily and obstinately refuses to put. said siding in for the accommodation of 
this petitioner without any legal reason or sufficient excuse therefor. 

Wherefore, this petitioner prays this honorable Court for an order issuing 
to the said defendant commanding it to furnish to this petitioner proper side- 
track facilities in accordance with law. 

Scales, Taylor & Scales, 
Attorneys for Petitioner. 

This petition was served on defendant company with request for answer. 
It appearing from answer of defendant that an agreement had been reached

STEVENSON COMPANY v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD 

COMPANY. 

This is complaint for failure to pay $6 demurrage on Seaboard Air Line 
Railway car No. 7018 and $2 demurrage on car No. 10607 by defendant to com- 
plainant. 

The facts appear to be as follows : Car No. 7018, consigned to complainant, 
was transported to Wilmington, N. C, on the 27th of February, 1905, by the 
Seaboard Air Line Company. There was a contract between the Seaboard 
Air Line Company and the consignee that this car would be delivered at con- 
signee's place of business on defendant's dummy-line in the city of Wilming- 
ton, and, in pursuance of this agreement the Seaboard Air Line Company de- 
livered this car to defendant and paid, or agreed to pay, $1.50 for switching 
service, which is the price agreed upon by the railroad company for this 
switching service. This car was found by defendant not to be in proper repair 
and was promptly returned to the Seaboard Air Line Company to be put in 
proper repair. Car was repaired and returned to defendant on March 6th, 
and on March 7th was placed at complainant's place of business for unloading. 

Car No. 10607 was consigned to complainant at Wilmington, and arrived 
there over the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad on January 18, 1905. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 197 

On same day freight was paid and car was ordered to be placed at com- 
plainant's place of business on the dummy-line in the city of Wilmington. 
There was an implied agreement between complainant and defendant that 
this car would be so placed. The car was not placed for unloading until Janu- 
ary 23, 1905. 

Upon the foregoing facts the Commission is of the opinion that the com- 
plainant is entitled to recover $2 for failure to place Gar No. 10G07, from 
January 18 to January 23, and it is so ordered. 

It does not appear that defendant had been guilty of such negligence as to 
Car No. 7018 as to violate any rule of the Commission, assuming it to be true 
that the delay to place this car was by reason of returning the same to the 
Seaboard Air Line Company for repairs, which is not disputed. 



CAROLINA-PORTLAND CEMENT COMPANY v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE 
RAILROAD COMPANY. 

This is a proceeding for the purpose of having defendant refund to com- 
plainants the sum of $7, which it is alleged was wrongfully collected by de- 
fendant as demurrage. 

The facts are as follows : Complainant shipped car-load of lime, consisting 
of 125 barrels, from Sherwood, Tennessee, to J. W. Ward, Jr., at Wilmington, 
N. C, on the 10th of August, 1904. The bill of lading was sent to E. B. 
Williamson, agent of the Seaboard Air Line Railway at Wilmington, with 
instructions as to disposition of the car. Bill of lading showed shipment made 
in N. C. & St. L. Car No. 6762. En route the car-load was transferred to 
Southern Car No. 24170, but neither the consignor nor consignee were advised 
of this fact. The bill of lading was forwarded to E. B. Williamson by letter 
from Charleston. S. C, under date of the 15th of August, 1904. Southern Car 
No. 24176 arrived in Wilmington on the 19th day of August, 1904, and on that 
date the Atlantic Coast Line Company's agent mailed notice by postal card to 
J. W. Ward, Jr., at Wilmington, stating that the Southern Car No. 34176, con- 
signed to him, had arrived. This notice was not received by J. W. Ward, Jr.. 
as he lived at Benson, N. C. This notice did not give the car number called 
for in bill of lading nor the correct number of Southern car to which the load 
of car described in bill of lading had been transferred, nor the weight and 
amount of freight charges due thereon as shown by way-bill. Immediately 
upon receipt of bill of lading E. B. Williamson made inquiry of defendant for 
the car, and this was repeated from day to day until the freight was found, 
which was seven days after free time had expired, as claimed by defendant. 
The agent of complainant and J. W. Ward, Jr., were required to pay and did 
pay $7 demurrage before the freight would be delivered. 

Upon these facts the Commission is of opinion that defendant was not 
authorized to collect any demurrage, and that $7 so collected should be re- 
turned to complainant, to whom it is now due. 

Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 



198 H". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

First. The notice was insufficient. In this case the notice should have 
shown Southern Car No. 24176 and the N. C, & St. L. Car No. 6762, from which 
the car-load had been transferred, and also the weight and charges. It is no 
answer to this that J. WL Ward, Jr., did not receive the card, and was not, 
therefore, misled by it. The rule requires that railroad companies must serve 
notice in one of the ways provided for, and the right to enforce the penalty 
does not attach until this is done. 

Second. If notice had been in proper form, no demurrage should be charged 
in this case, because it appears that agent for consignor and consignee had 
inquired for N. C. & St. L. Car No. 6762 from day to day during the days for 
which demurrage was claimed, and was informed by defendant's agent that 
such car had not arrived. The bill in possession of defendant's agent showed 
that this car had been unloaded into Southern Car No. 24176. 

We do not agree to the position that making inquiry of defendant's yard- 
master was not sufficient diligence to relieve against the penalty. The yard- 
master should have inquired of such other agent or agents of defendant as 
could give information concerning the matter. 

It is ordered that defendant refund to complainant $7, charge as demurrage 
on this car. 



ROUND PINE LUMBER COMPANY v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

This is a petition for spur side-track of sufficient capacity to hold four cars 
on Seaboard Air Line Railway between Merry Oaks and New Hill, at 24th 
mile-post, for complainant's saw-mill, which is in operation about 800 yards 
from the proposed siding. The complainant proposes to construct a tramway 
from their mill to this siding. 

The evidence shows that approximately 3,000,000 feet of lumber will be 
shipped by complainant from this siding within two years from the date of 
this construction and that the revenue derived therefrom by defendant will 
not be less than $6,000. 

The cost of constructing this side-track, the grading being done and cross- 
ties being furnished by the complainant, will be about $200. 

The Commission is of opinion that petitioners are entitled to the relief they 
ask, and it is, therefore, ordered, upon complainant doing the grading and 
furnishing the cross-ties, that defendant construct a spur siding of sufficient 
capacity to hold four cars, and that this be done on or before the 23d day of 
August, 1905. 

Franklin McNeill, 
Chairman. 

EXCEPTIONS. 

Exceptions by the defendant to the order of the Corporation Commission, 
dated July 6, 1905, and served upon defendant on July 14, 1905 : 

The Seaboard Air Line Railway Company, hereinafter called the company, 
excepts to the order and rule of the North Carolina Corporation Commission, 
hereinafter called the Commission, made in the above-entitled matter, dated 
July 6, 1905, and served July 14, 1905, upon the following grounds, to-wit : 

First Exception. — The company excepts to said order upon the ground that 
it is unjust and unreasonable in the following respects : 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 109 

(ft) Because the distance between Merry Oaks and New Hill is four miles, 
and there are the necessary and adequate side-tracks at both said places, and 
in addition thereto' there are already existing between said places three more 
side-tracks. That there ought not to be any more side-tracks between said 
places, because the same are not necessary for the convenience of shippers, and 
add to the hazard of operating the railway. 

(b) Because complainant has no saw-mill located on the line of the com- 
pany's road, but, as appears from the order of the Commission, complainant's 
saw-mill is located eight hundred yards from the proposed siding, and com- 
plainant proposes to construct a tramway from its mill to this siding, if estab- 
lished. Complainant could almost as easily construct this tramroad to some 
siding or station already established, or it could have located its mill at a 
point convenient to such station or siding. The company ought not to be com- 
pelled to increase the hazard of its operation by putting in an additional siding 
when complainant could have avoided such necessity so easily. 

(c) Because the siding or spur track requested is within one mile of a 
regular station, Merry Oaks. 

Second Exception. — The company excepts to said order upon the ground that 
the enforcement of the same will entail considerable cost upon it, and will 
thereby work a deprivation of its property without compensation and without 
due process of law, in violation of the fourteenth amendment to the Constitu- 
tion of the United States. 

Third Exception. — The company excepts to said order upon the ground that 
its enforcement will be the taking of its property for a private purpose, and 
without compensation and without due process of law, in violation of the 
fourteenth amendment to the Constitution of the United States, 

Fourth Exception. — The company excepts to said order upon the ground that 
the Commission is without power to make the same under the circumstances 
and evidence in this case. 

Fifth Exception. — The company excepts to said order upon the ground that 
the evidence shows that complainant's mill is located half a mile from the 
proposed siding, and that the siding is not to be used in loading lumber from 
the mill, but from the complainant's tramroad, and that the Commission is 
without power to make such order. 

Sixth Exception. — The company excepts to said order upon the ground that 
the enforcement of said order would increase the necessary hazard of operat- 
ing its road, thereby adding to the dangers of travel and the carriage of freight 
over the same ; and that the interest of the road and of the traveling public, 
and of those using the road as a common carrier of freights and passengers, is 
subordinated to the mere convenience of complainant, and that the said order 
ought not to be enforced. 

All of the matters and things herein stated the company is ready and willing 
to establish by proof upon the hearing of these exceptions. 

Wherefore, these exceptions considered, the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
Company respectfully asks that the order made on July 6, 1905, and served on 
July 14, 1905, by the North Carolina Corporation Commission, be revoked.

Pou & Fuller, 

Attorneys. 



200 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

Hearing on exceptions for Wednesday, July 26, 1905. 

Mr. Pou, of counsel for defendant, in open court, asks leave to amend the 
exceptions heretofore filed, as follows : 

In the first exception, sub-section A, in the fourth line of said sub-section, 
the word "three" to be stricken out and in place thereof the word "two" in- 
serted. This amendment is asked because Mr. Pou states that he gathered 
from the correspondence and records that there were three side-tracks between 
said stations, and he learns to-day from Mr. Hudson that there are only two. 
This change is made to conform the exceptions to the facts. 

And to add to said first exception, the following sub-section, to be known as 
sub-section D, and to read as follows: 

(d) Because the location at which the said siding or spur track is requested 
is not a proper place at which to establish a side-track, the grade of the road 
being such that it is not proper or practicable to have the siding there. 

This cause coming on to be heard upon exceptions by defendant, complainant 
being represented by H. E. Norris, Esq., and D. E. Mclver, Esq., attorneys, and 
defendant being represented by James H. Pou, Esq., attorney, evidence was 
offered by both parties. 

After full consideration, it is ordered that the exceptions be and they are 
hereby overruled, and that the order heretofore made is' in all respects affirmed. 

Franklin McNeill, 
Chairman. 

NOTICE OF APPEAL. 

Whereas, the North Carolina Corporation Commission made an order in the 
above-entitled cause, to which exceptions were duly filed by the Seaboard Air 
Line Railway, which said exceptions were heard before the North Carolina 
Corporation Commission, after notice to the interested parties, and on July 28, 
1905, the said Commission made an order overruling the exceptions of the 
Seaboard Air Line Railway to the said order theretofore made ; 

And whereas, the Seaboard Air Line Railway believes there is error in the 
action of the said the North Carolina Corporation Commission in making said 
order, and in overruling the said exceptions of the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
to the said order, which said errors are errors of fact as well as of law, and 
the said Seaboard Air Line Railway desires that all of the issues, both of law 
and of fact, shall be passed upon by a court of competent jurisdiction ; 

Now, therefore, the Seaboard Air Line Railway hereby prays an appeal, and 
gives notice thereof, from the said orders of the said the North Carolina 
Corporation Commission to the Superior Court, to the end that all of the 
issues, both of law and of fact, which arrive in the said orders and exceptions 
thereto may be tried and heard de novo, and said appellant is ready to give 
such bond as may be legally required of it, and to pay such costs and charges 
for making up transcript on appeal and the like as may be proper, and is 
ready and willing tx> do and perform all such other acts as may be necessary 
and proper to perfect the said appeal. This August 5, 1905. 

Pou & Fuller, 
T. B. Womack, 
Attorneys for Seaboard Air Line Railway. 

Appeal granted. 

Order of the Commission affirmed by both the Superior and Supreme Courts. 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 201 

J. L. TOWNSEND AND OTHERS, H. A. TOWNSEND AND OTHERS v. 
ATLANTIC COaST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY. 

Petition was filed in this case by complainants, J. L. Townsend and others, 
praying for depot facilities at McDonalds, a place on branch road leading from 
Elrod to Conway. 

Petition was also filed by complainants, H. A. Townsend and others, praying 
for depot facilities at Raynham, a place on same branch road. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company answered, averring their readi- 
ness to erect a depot at either point, as the Corporation Commission might 
direct, but insisting that, because these places were within one and one-half 
miles of each other, they should only be required to erect a depot at one of 
the places. 

The two petitions were heard together on January 5, 1905, J. L. Townsend 
and others being represented by their attorneys, Mclntyre & Lawrence; H. A. 
Townsend and others being represented by their attorney, John D. Bellamy. 
Esq. ; and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company being represented by 
their attorney, N. A. McLean, Esq. 

It appears from the evidence that Raynham is a place on the Elrod-Conway 
branch of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, four miles from Elrod. 

McDonalds is a place on the same branch road, five and one-half miles from 
Elrod. The nearest depot on said branch road south of Elrod is Ashpole, eleven 
miles distant; so that McDonalds is midway between Ashpole and Elrod, being 
five and one-half miles from each. Raynham is about seven miles from Ash- 
pole. The territory between Raynham and Elrod is within four miles of Elrod, 
a station on the main line of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. 

The Corporation Commission is of the opinion that depot facilities should 
be furnished by the Atlantic Coast Line -Railroad Company at McDonalds, as 
prayed for, and it is so ordered ; and that the depot be built adequate for the 
accommodation of passengers and freight at that point within sixty days from 
service of this order.

THE CITY OF DURHAM v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, NORTH 
CAROLINA RAILWAY COMPANY, SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY 
COMPANY, and NORFOLK AND WESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Petition was filed in this case as follows : 
To the Honorable the Corporation Commission of Worth Carolina: 
The City of Durham petitioning, showeth : 

1. That the City of Durham is a municipal corporation of North Carolina. 

2. That the North Carolina Railroad Company is a corporation organized 
under the laws of North Carolina and owning a railroad extending from Golds- 
boro to Charlotte, through the City of Durham ; that the Southern Railway 
Company is a corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of North 
Carolina and is the lessee of the North Carolina Railroad Company and oper- 
ates the same under and by virtue of a lease of August, 1895, running ninety- 
nine years ; that the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company is a corporation duly 
organized and existing under the laws of North Carolina and owns a line ex- 
tending parallel to the North Carolina Railroad Company from Duke's factory 



202 S. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

in the City of Durham eastward to the corporate limits, said Seaboard Air 
Line Railway Company having succeeded to the title of the Durham and 
Northern Railway Company ; that the Norfolk and Western Railway Company 
is a corporation duly organized and existing under the laws of the State 
of North Carolina and owns a line of railway extending from Lynchburg, 
Virginia, to the City of Durham, and as plaintiff is informed and believes, 
has leased from the Southern Railway a line of track from Chapel Hill Street 
east between the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company's track and the main 
line of the North Carolina Railway Company to the union depot. 

3. That Carr Street is a regularly laid out street of the City of Durham,, 
beginning at Morehead Avenue near the southern part of the town and extend- 
ing to the main line of the North Carolina Railway Company and running 
under the same through a tunnel and ending at Peabody Street ; that said Carr 
Street has a curb on either side, is macadamized most of the distance, has a 
brick sidewalk laid all the way on its western side and is greatly used by the 
people who live on Carr Street, Morehead Avenue, Duke Street, and other por- 
tions of the city adjacent thereto, and by 300 or 400 school children who> 
attend Morehead Public School. 

4. That the General Assembly of North Carolina at its session in the year 
1905 passed an act entitled "An Act to Amend the Charter of the City of 

Durham," the same having been ratified the day of February, 1905, a 

copy of which said act is hereto attached, wherein the City of Durham is 
authorized and empowered to extend Carr Street under the railroad tracks 
crossing said street or the extension of said street and to cross the right-of-way 
of any railroad owning the same at said crossing or any extension of said 
street across said right-of-way ; that by section 3 it was provided that the Cor- 
poration Commission of North Carolina is hereby authorized and empowered to 
ascertain upon notice and hearing the value of said right-of-way so taken by 
said street or any extension thereof across the same and to fix and determine 
the distance of the surface of said street or the extension of it to the railroad 
tracks overhead, and to require the raise when and to the extent necessary of 
the tracks of any railroad now crossing said street or any extension of said 
street, and fix and determine what part of the cost of making said crossing 
under said tracks on said street or any extension of same shall be paid by the 
City of Durham and any railroad company affected by said crossing. 

5. The City of Durham, by its proper municipal authorities, has, under the 
power aforesaid, decided and determined to extend Carr Street, 48 feet wide, 
to Main Street, according to the plot hereto attached as a part of this petition, 
and that the snid extension will cross under the main line of the North Caro- 
lina railroad and side-tracks built upon an embankment at the same grade of 
said main line, and also, under the track leased or to be leased by the Southern 
Railway Company to the Norfolk and Western Railway Company is an ap- 
proach by it to the union station and under some of the yard-tracks of the 
Seaboard Air Line Railway Company ; that the distances are marked upon the 
said map and that the said map shows the present location of the said tracks, 
except some moonlight tracks put down on Peabody Street and Pettigrew 
Street on Sunday night, March 19, 1905. 

6. That there is now and has been since 1885 or 1886 a tunnel under the 
main line of the North Carolina Railroad Company and through its embank- 
ment at the mouth of Carr Street, and that the said tunnel was cut at the 
request of the City of Durham by the Richmond and Danville Railroad Com- 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 203 

pany in 1885 or 1886 for the convenience of travel from Carr Street to the 
north side of said railroad embankment into what was then known as and 
called Peabody Street; that said cut under said track, through said embank- 
ment, is not wide enough to accommodate the increased travel of a growing city 
like Durham ;, that it is not of the width of Carr Street ; that said under-track 
crossing has been of great service to the people of the City of Durham and 
vicinity until all travel through it was interrupted on Sunday night, March 
19, 1905, by the hasty laying of some railroad tracks on the other side of same. 
Wherefore, your petitioner prays that notice be issued to the North Carolina 
Railroad Company, Southern Railway Company, its lessee, Seaboard Air Line 
Railway Company, and the Norfolk and Western Railway Company to appear 
at such time, as early as possible, before your honorable Commission, and that 
you hear and ascertain the value of said right-of-way so taken by the extension 
of Carr Street, fix and determine the distance as surface of said street or the 
extension of it to the railroad tracks overhead, and to require the raising of 
the tracks of the said railroads now crossing said street or its extension to such 
an extent as your honorable Commission may deem wise and necessary, and to 
fix and determine what part of the cost of making said crossing under said 
tracks shall be paid by the City of Durham and the railroads affected by said 
crossing. Manning & Foushee, 

Attorneys for Plaintiff. 

Before a day was fixed for hearing, petitioners asked leave to withdraw 
complaint. Granted. 



IN RE COMPLAINT AS TO THE CONDITION OF THE YADKIN 

RAILROAD. 

Complaint having been made to the Corporation Commission that the condi- 
tion of above railroad was bad and dangerous, on the 10th of March, 1905, 
after notice to the Southern Railway, by whom said railroad is operated, in 
company with Superintendent Baker and Engineer Fry, the Corporation Com- 
missioners visited and inspected said railroad. The places where accidents oc- 
curred September 15, 1904, November 30, 1904, and February 13, 1905, were 
pointed out to the Commissioners. These, we were informed, were the only 
accidents that occurred from July 1, 1904, to March 1, 1905. 

The causes assigned for each accident would appear from the report of the 
Southern Railway, hereto attached, which report will also show the average 
number of men employed on track, number of cross-ties put in main track, and 
the number of passenger and freight trains handled for the period above 
named. Four of the forty-one miles of main line were laid with sixty-pound 
rail and the balance with fifty-pound rail. 

There appeared to be too large a per cent, of bad ties and the road-bed was 
very much in need of draining, and we are of the opinion that the complaint 
that the condition of the railroad was unsafe was well-founded. The slow 
schedule and the care used in operating the trains on this road may explain 
why so few accidents have occurred within the period above named. 

We were informed that the four miles of sixty-pound rail had recently been 
laid and that it was the purpose of the Southern Railway to replace several 
miles more of the fifty-pound rail with sixty -pound rail and that they intended 



204 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

renewing the cross-ties. A number of ties had at that time been distributed 
along the road. 

In. our judgment, on account of the grades and curves and heavy loads of 
freight, this road ought to be laid with at least sixty-pound rail and the de- 
fective ties renewed and the roadway drained in order to make this a safe 
road. 

It is ordered that a copy of this finding be furnished the Southern Railway. 

Fkanklin McNeill, 
Chairman. 

NORTH CAROLINA CASE- WORKERS' ASSOCIATION v. SOUTHERN 
RAILWAY COMPANY. 

The North Carolina Case- Workers' Association is an organization composed 
of a majority of the furniture manufacturers in North Carolina, and this com- 
plaint was filed by the president and secretary of the transportation committee 
of this organization. The complaint alleged that various manufacturing con- 
cerns had made application to defendant company for cars for the transporta- 
tion of the output of these factories, but that defendant had failed to furnish 
a sufficient number of cars for the transportation of same, and that they were 
suffering considerable loss and damage on account of the failure of defendant 
to provide cars. That they were needing over three hundred cars for imme- 
diate shipments. The Commission, upon receipt of complaint, took the matter 
up at once with A. B. Andrews, first vice-president of the Southern Railway 
Company, and a day was fixed for hearing the case at High Point. At the 
appointed time the Commission met at High Point with the members of the 
Chamber of Commerce representing complainants, the traffic manager and 
division freight agent of defendant company being present. After a confer- 
ence, the traffic manager promised to make every effort to have cars furnished, 
if the complainant would give a list of cars desired, with destination, etc., 
which list was furnished by C. J. Fields, secretary, the number and size cars 
being as follows : 50 36-foot cars, 155 40-foot cars, 1 42-foot car, 15 45-foot cars. 
117 50-foot cars. 

The hearing was continued in order that defendant should have time to have 
cars forwarded, but, in the meantime, sufficient cars not being received to sat- 
isfy the demands of complainant, the matter was taken up vigorously by wire 
and letter with defendant, urging that everything possible be done towards 
granting the relief desired by complainant. The demand for cars by petitioner 
was urgent, as they were having orders countermanded for failure to furnish 
shipments according to contract. 

At a subsequent session of the Commission, it appearing that a sufficient 
number of cars had been delivered to complainant for the transportation of 
their shipments, and no further relief being asked, case was closed. 



SOUTHERLAND & CO. v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY. 

Complainants in this case, representing a large number of truckers in the 
vicinity of Paison, a station on the line of defendant's road, complained that 
they were suffering great loss, damage and inconvenience in that defendant had 
discontinued receiving beans, potatoes, huckleberries, etc., on their local trains 
leaving Faison at 11 and 12 o'clock A. M. each day, and which ordinarily 



COMPLAINTS AND DECISIONS. 205 

reached New York and Philadelphia on the second day and Boston and Provi- 
dence on the third day after shipment ; but now they were refusing to receive 
said shipments until an afternoon train several hours later, and thereby arriv- 
ing in Eastern markets a day later and in a damaged condition. The Commis- 
sion took this matter up with defendant company and the following answer 
was received : 

Yours 7th, covering letter from Messrs. T. C. Southerland & Co., relative to 
the forwarding of truck shipments. At the beginning of the season the Execu- 
tive Committee of the Eastern Carolina Fruit and Truck-growers' Association, 
representing seven hundred growers on the Atlantic Coast Line, visited Wil- 
mington to confer with our transportation people relative to schedule for hand- 
ling the season's business. The schedule of last year was fully discussed, and 
when it developed that shipments moving on train No. 2, which left Wilming- 
ton at (3 A. M. could hardly reach the New York markets the following evening, 
but would make the same market as shipments forwarded on No. 18, the com- 
mittee did not hesitate to select the latter train to pick up less than car-load 
shipments : this arrangement giving more time for gathering, picking and load- 
ing the truck. We offered the committee for this service either train No. 2, 
due to leave Wilmington at 6 A. M., or train No. 18, and they were unanimous 
in their choice of train No. 18, which is due to leave Wilmington at 11 A. M. 
We also agreed to run train No. 80 to pick up solid cars. This train leaves 
Wilmington at 8 o'clock in the morning and reaches South Rocky Mount at 3 :10 
P. M., making close connection with No. 212. which is due to arrive at Jersey 
City G o'clock the following evening. If we should undertake to pick up less 
than car-load shipments with this train it would simply mean that we could 
not make connection with No. 212, and both solid cars and E. C. L. shipments 
would arrive in the market late. 

You will readily understand that it is our desire to do everything we can 
consistently to further the prompt marketing of truck grown on the line of our 
road, and our schedules for this movement are only arranged after a full and 
free conference with the shippers. 

Yours truly, K. A. Brand, 

General Freight Agent. 

This not being satisfactory, the Commission visited Faison and had a confer- 
ence with the shippers, the result of which was a letter from the traffic mana- 
ger of defendant company, reading as follows : 

Referring further to conversation relative to. truck schedules : On investiga- 
tion we find that the traffic has fallen off to a point where we believe we can 
give better service by handling pick-up freight on No. 2 instead of No. 18. 
Therefore, we have arranged, commencing Tuesday, June 27, to discontinue 
No. 18 and run No. 2 in two sections ; one section exclusively for perishables, 
and we will endeavor to get this train to South Rocky Mount at an hour which 
will enable us to leave that point with some chance of making New York mar- 
kets by following P. M. As explained to you, however, this is a very uncertain 
schedule for the New York markets ; but the change will improve the service to 
other markets, and 1 hope we can do fairly well in the way of making New 
York markets the second morning after freight is shipped. 

Yours truly, 

H. M. Emerson, 

Traffic Manager. 



206 1ST. C. CORPOBATION COMMISSION. 

This being satisfactory to the complainants, and no further relief being 
asked, case was closed. 



ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY to THE COMMISSION. 

Petitioner in this case asked to be allowed to change the schedule of its No. 
41 train so as to leave Rocky Mount at 6 o'clock A. M. instead of 5 :17 A. M., 
and to arrive at Goldsboro 7 :31 A. M. instead of 6 :48 A. M. Inasmuch as the 
granting of this petition would break an important connection between the 
Southern Railway's train No. 112 at Goldsboro for passengers South and West, 
the matter was taken up with the Southern Railway ; and it appearing that 
said company was willing to change its schedule so as to conform to the pro- 
posed change in part, the Commission granted the proposed change in so far as 
not to disturb the Goldsboro connection. 



GREEN ET ALS., CONSTITUTING THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMIS- 
SIONERS, v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY and the RALEIGH AND 
PAMLICO SOUND RAILROAD COMPANY. 

This cause coming on to be heard, and it appearing to the Corporation Com- 
mission, from the evidence offered, as well as from personal, inspection and 
examination by the Commissioners, that the crossing named in petition, to-wit. 
the crossing of Seaboard Air Line track on public road known as the Louisburg 
road, about one mile north of the city of Raleigh, is dangerous to the public ; 
but on account of the topography it seems impracticable for defendants to 
either raise or lower their tracks, but is practicable by changing public road 
so as to run between the present public road and Pigeon House Branch, over 
the right-of-way of the Raleigh and Pamlico Sound Railroad and tunneling 
under the Seaboard Air Line, to make a safe crossing. The parties hereto hav- 
ing agreed to the latter course and to the terms and manner in which the work 
should be done, and having filed copy of the agreement with this Commission, 
judgment is therefore entered according to said agreement.

Chairman.

senger depot facilities, and promising that arrangements would be made for 
the building of a new and commodious station. 

At a subsequent meeting of the Commission, it appearing that a contract had 
been let for the erection of 'same, and no further relief being asked, case was 
closed.
